Attorney Allain Marain

Street Crimes

New Jersey law provides no formal definition of street crimes. Nor does the law of any other State. Intuitively, "street crimes" presents the image of (not surprisingly) crimes that traditionally happen outdoors. These would include arson, road rage, assault, stalking, harassment, theft, burglary, and many drug offenses. Of course, most of these so-called street crimes can also occur indoors too (well, road rage not so much).

Street crimes can be distinguished from white collar crimes. These white collar crimes traditionally occur indoors. They would include offenses such as fraud, bribery, ponzi schemes, insider trading, embezzlement, cybercrime, copyright infringement, money laundering, identity theft, tax evasion, tax fraud, and forgery. Crimes relating to the environment, such as water pollution, are also often classified as white collar crimes.
