Prof. June Carbone was Interviewed in American Banker on Why More Women are Convicted of Embezzlement

Professor June Carbone was interviewed recently for an article in American Banker that examines why more women are convicted of embezzlement than men when research shows that both men and women tend to embezzle at a fairly equal rate and amount. "There's a whole lot of white-collar crime and very little of it gets prosecuted," said Carbone. "What's different about embezzlement is it's low-hanging fruit. Typically you'll have a bank self-report the embezzlement that is easy to prove and a jury gets it."
