The federal government has enhanced efforts to prosecute white-collar crimes. Despite the heavy penalties executives and employers face when the government brings charges for wire fraud, mail fraud, tax fraud, bribery, and securities violations, few who work as professionals understand how their actions can lead to imprisonment or seven-figure costs. Ethics in Motion profiles individuals who once led lives of distinction as professionals in the business community. Despite their erstwhile perceptions of being morally upstanding citizens, they fudged on government forms; they participated in bribery or corruption schemes; they used the mail, the telephone, or the Internet to convey information that would mislead. Whereas they wanted to believe their actions did not represent more than indiscretions, their stories showed how such indiscretions derailed the promise of their lives. Their profiles showed how easily bad decisions could lead a person into our nation's growing population of felons.
