The term white-collar crime was coined by sociologist  Edwin Sutherland to refer to crimes that people of respectable social status commit in the course of their occupation

Compared to blue-collar crime, white-collar crime is much harder to be prosecuted because the perpetrator usually has a really high status in the industry, such as high-ranking government officials, or upper management from a big company.
