A general term to cover many other crimes, a person (even though operating as a corporation or business entity) can be prosecuted for business-like acts or conduct.

These acts can be committed by one person or a number of people. And these acts can be committed through electronic means, verbal, or physical actions.

Here are some examples of corporate crimes that can come in many forms:

  • Bribery of an Elected Official (Penal Code Section 85 & 86)
  • Bribery of an Officer (Penal Code Section 67 & 68)
  • Embezzlement (Penal Code Section 503)
  • Conspiracy (Penal Code Section 182)
  • Extortion (Penal Code Section 518)
  • Fraud
  • Money Laundering
  • Perjury
  • Grand Theft

As one can see, many particular crimes can be attached to a corporate entity so long as it can be traced to someone who has made a decision or an act that qualifies as criminal conduct.
