Various business practices, once routine and accepted, are now the targets of federal criminal prosecutions.  Legislation like the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and expanding judicial interpretations have criminalized conduct previously believed legal and increased the penalties for such conduct.  Furthermore, businesses and executives who find themselves in a web of criminal charges discover that the charges are only part of the story; they also face potentially severe restitution orders and other financial penalties.
