Crimes that are considered white collar crimes include:
Receiving stolen property (knowingly)

However, depending on the type of charge, the minimum value of property that would qualify the offense as a felony may increase or decrease.
Penalties for White Collar Crimes in California
Because of the broad range of crimes included in this category, the penalties for criminal conviction of a white collar crime vary based on the nature of the specific charge, the value of property involved in the alleged crime, and the defendant’s prior criminal history.
Generally speaking, conviction of white collar crimes often comes with penalties including:
- Jail time
Additionally, since white collar crimes usually involve another person or entity, the victim has the right to seek damages from the accused through civil litigation, which is entirely separate from a criminal court trial.
