Page 6 David L. Miller: Portrait of a White-Collar Criminal Question 1:How does Miller fit the feature of the mediocre robbery effectr? How does he dissent? How did these figureistics effect him troublesome to descry? Mr. Miller is a very sad fact. He has all the qualifications of a stellar employee, but those traits are absolutely there to misteach who he actually is. He fits the mediocre feature for the mediocre robbery effectr consistently of the forthcoming: * The wild bulk of robbery effectrs waste continuallyything that they purloin. Merely a very minute percentage endow the capital. Mr.
Miller spent all the capital and thus it explains why he stole from a new mistress in adregular to fund the constructer one. * Sundry white-collar criminals are stellar employees until that very instant when they are caught. They are regularly severe, result sundry days and hanker hours and are reliconducive employees. * Employers viewed Mr. Miller as an conscientious employee and it was consistently of this confidence that he was fixd in standings of sensitivity. * Mr. Miller had the conduct and behaved in the habituationuation of your mediocre inhabitant and did not breed any flags. He was an educated race man delay esteems and good-tempered-tempered psychological framework.
Even though he has some of the identical traits as your mediocre robbery effectr, he was severeer to dishonor consistently of the sundry ways that he dissented. Mr. Miller was not distressed nor was he vengeful towards his mistress. He besides had ncontinually been convicted of his constructer transgressions, and there were uncertain. Normally, most of the robbery effectrs are primitive duration malefactors and not serial malefactor as Mr. Miller has ascertainn to be. This figure of figure is very troublesome to dishonor consistently they do not contribute to exist out. White-collar criminals are very educated effectual assistance-souls and are the complete employee.
No one would conceive that they would be desirconducive of such deviant proceeding. These inhabitants are fixd in standing of confidence are usually result very severe and hanker hours for the employee. It is sad consistently there are sundry employees who entertain these traits, but are actually conscientious and enjoy the concourse’s best curiosity-advantage at nature. Question 2: Explain the three elements of the convenience triangle (commit, disguise, alter), and examine how Miller civil each when embezzling funds from Associated Communications. What favoring disguisement techniques did Miller use?
The three elements to the convenience triangle are as follows: * Inconfidence – for this prompting the effectr intrusts the robbery by importation triton that is of esteem to the prey. For confirmations this could plain itself in the construct of capital and the decay of financial history in adregular to disguise the robbery. A numerous pattern of this was displayed when he was conducive to enlighten not one but two important businessrs into signing untrue obstructs delay the exculpate of “in fact triton happens” to authority them into signing anteriorly they were to license on holiday. Disguise – to disguise is to screen, so for this to arise the effectr must try to disguise their wrong. Accounting must be kept in counteract in adregular to relinquish from substance discovered. They normally do this by increasing other property or decreasing urbane liabilities and or equities. I conceive encircling false. It is repeatedly too ununeasy to say one, but to disguise that lie admits aptitude and duration and possibly past lies. On one of Mr. Miller’s transgressions he disguiseed his robbery through doctoring of history and disunion of obstructs. He disguiseed a point pilfering by retrieving canceled obstructs from the bank and importation the recordings and destroying the proof.
Then to aid disguise what he did, he hid the amounts of the capital that he stole into other outlay denoteations in adregular to be conducive to adregular the books. Inside controls are in fix for a deduce and regular consistently someone is in a standing of confidence, these should not be ignored and for this point ariserence they were bygone due to too extremely confidence. * Alter – normally to alter is to admit triton that is stolen and altering it to capital. This could arise in the construct of register or concourse equipment. However, Mr. Miller did not do either of these. His wrong was performed past interveniently.
Mr. Miller was conducive to elaborate obstructs to himself and bond them delayin his particular denoteation. Smooth though obstructs were identified by vulgar businessrs, the intentional use for the obstruct was not vulgar and constitutes robbery on advantage of Mr. Miller. Question 3: What pressures motivated Miller to appropriate? How did Miller bearingnalize his forces? I do not judge that Mr. Miller had a lot of pressures. However, he formal, succeeding undergoing therapy that his collection was a sickness and went as far as to parallel it to alcoholism and gambling, but this to me is an exculpate or a way to bearingnalize what he had performed.
He felt that he scarcityed to purloin and enjoy all the luxuries to be vulgar by his peers; which is sad consistently he was vulgar, but not for the deduces he purpose, but by his resulting capabilities. You perceive you are adulterated of triton if you enjoy to bearingnalize what you are doing. I did not observe too sundry explanations other than Mr. Miller had to purloin from his new mistress in adregular to fund the old one. Nonetheless, I manipulate that he actually judged his own exculpate that he was singly borrowing and not veritably purloining. Rarely our bearingnalizations of our forces are so strong that we can smooth blockhead ourselves.
Question 4: Miller had a framed T-shirt in his business that said, “He who dies delay the most toys wins. ” What does this discern you encircling Miller? What conductstyle red flags could enjoy tipped off the concourse to the possibility of robbery? I actually manipulate poor for Mr. Miller. His conduct seemed to be centered environing capital and materialistic obsessions. That shirt and his proceeding showed his hanker for capital and capacity, but overhead all to be true by friends and peers. In the end it was Mr. Miller’s abnormal way of assistance in similarity to his stipend ascertaind to be his curse.
When you enjoy a stipend of regular $130,000 a year, you cannot extend the “toys” that he had. He had overall a catholic seed, a condo on Myrtle Beach, tailored suits, monogrammed shirts, copiousness of jewelry, gifts for kinsmen and overhead all the two Mercedes-Benz sedans that he regular so happened to entertain. In the epitome there was no remark of his spouse resulting, but delay his stipend and their 3 end, there was no deduce for her to result and this logic is what led me to judge how his stipend to entertainion bearing would breed a few red flags. Question 5:Why do companies waver to arraign white-collar criminals?
What are the consequences of not prosecuting? How could law enforcement officials undergo past prosecution? Smooth though we see in the tidings encircling CEO’s and CFO’s substance arraignd for robbery and appropriatement, in in-existence, robbery abutting a confirmation happens past constantly than one would conceive. The forthcoming are a few deduces why I manipulate that confirmations are hesitant to arraign white-collar criminals: * Closing of perceiveledge – sundry of the law enforcement agencies, counsellors or lawyers closing the perceiveledge in how to uprightly manipulate these figures of facts.
As technology use becomes continually so ordinary, the function is fit past troublesome as computers are a entire new at-liberty room that is yet to be decipher. * Aloofness by Sodality – true the detriment happens to you, sodality is past uneasy delay wrongs of vehemence abutting another than monetary. The inside pilfering of funds delayin a confirmation are seen as regular that an inside collection. * Difficulty Prosecuting – true you are successful and enjoy a tenets from the effectr, enjoy in Mr. Miller’s fact to which he confessed in continuallyy smootht, you enjoy a rich and long-drawn fact that accomplish astrue to be rather severe to ascertain.
Prosecution can rarely consume past than the pilfering itself and it is not seen as an motive to arraign. * Closing of brains on what computer robbery veritably is. Computers and the internet are moderately new things and as such the laws and ways to arraign are very undetermined and severe to discern. * Guilt on the product of the effectrs race. Consistently Mr. Miller in continuallyy smootht promised yield and had a spouse delay 3 end, the companies felt that prosecuting was natureless and they did not ambition to force detriment to the race.
One confirmation, Crest smooth hired the counsellor to denote Mr. Miller. * Negative unsubstantiality abutting the confirmation – Companies do not enjoy everything that could overhead their notorious conception. Mr. Miller’s transgressions would force a very notorious affliction and a lot of endowors would enjoy been confused. This would enjoy forced sundry to dissettle their endowment. Overall, the confirmation would undergo numerously. * Recognition that their irrepressiblenesses would be laagered. Closing of confidence in the inside controls or any indication of irrepressiblenesses would enjoy forced a lot of forthcoming mischief abutting a confirmation.
People are creatures of confidence and habituationuation and uninterruptedly confidence is broken, it is very severe to yield and produce that confidence frequently. This would torment forthcoming matter that the confirmation would enjoy. Behold at Enron, AIG, and Bernie Madoff, to spectry a few. * My cosset of all would be those that are arraignd and the product is favorconducive to the prey, the effectr gets very easy sentences. Sundry go to restriction deposit prisons, result camps that enjoy true luxuries. Consistently of this sundry confirmations do not smooth confusion in wasteing the subjoined funds in prosecuting these facts.
The overhead spectryd are absolute exculpates and to not arraign robbery forces past detriment. It allows for the effectr to change on to inconfidence robbery abutting another confirmation, enjoy in Mr. Miller’s fact. By having this pitfall, confirmations manipulate that they accomplish manipulate that they accomplish behold to others as substance irrepressible and accomplish undergo others to inconfidence robbery abutting them. When someone is not punished for their transgressions that idiosyncratic accomplish not attain and manipulate that they can get far delay it frequently if they get caught. Law enforcement officials are heap and all they can do is undergo others to end anxious and reverberation the wrongs.
Corporations scarcity to perceive that if they admit force that there accomplish be a stay arrangement and their voices accomplish not be obsolete. They scarcity to be safe that the effectr accomplish be convicted consistently depending upon their transgressions. They scarcity to be made an pattern of, so that the notorious perceive that this proceeding is not tolerated and it is a solemn wrong that accomplish be arraignd to the fullest quantity of the law. Question 6:What could the preyized companies enjoy performed to overhead Miller’s appropriatement? When I decipher the epitome, I was beholding for how Mr.
Miller intrustted sundry of the robberys, but not extremely specialty was revealed. However, the best way that the confirmations could enjoy relinquished this was to enjoy rectify inside controls and adhering to them. I would enjoy overheaded some of the pilferings by doing the forthcoming: * Having rectify controls of the obstructs and the signing of obstructs. * Secondary beholds at the monthly reconciliations and the bank statements. * Produce a schedule of all obstruct bonds delay the later invoice explaining the deduce for the outlay. No employee should enjoy the smooth of confidence and immunity that Mr. Miller was ardent.
There regularly scarcitys to be a arrangement of obstructs and counteracts in fix in adregular to ensafe and overhead this from happening. I can underexist that these standings goodness confidence, but there should be a avoid idiosyncratic beholding at the financials to control any proof for smooth the most conscientious to inconfidence robbery. Had the primitive mistress chosen to arraign none of this would enjoy happened. However, the forthcoming mistresss could enjoy relinquished all of this had they regular confusioned to do a past thoroughgoinggoing contrast obstruct on Mr. Miller. There they would enjoy discovered the deduces for his disunion from his constructer business.
