White Collar Crime and Prison


Paperback Diary of a White Collar Criminal book cover

In this intimate diary, Jerome Mayne shares his life saving lessons of white collar crime, ethics, morality, trust and humility, with wit and passion.

In his 20’s, Jerome was an aspiring finance professional on his way to the top.  With his new family and his sights set for success, the world was his oyster.  Lured by the prospect of big business, his career derailed when he joined forces with his future co-conspirators in a real estate and mortgage fraud scandal. It was indeed white collar crime.

The nightmare begins with a hurricane of FBI investigations, criminal court and prison.  His journey twists and turns through the psychological collapse of prison, cancer and addiction.  Through it all, one woman’s undying devotion helps him climb back from defeat and self-pity, to a new life of integrity, trust and self confidence.

Books About White Collar Crime and Prison

Many books are written on white collar crime and prison. However, this book is a true story. As the title says, it is a diary.

For most of his adult life, prior to being convicted of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, conspiracy to commit mail fraud and money laundering, Jerome has kept a journal. While he was serving his 21 month federal prison sentence, he was unable to keep a journal or diary of any kind but he wrote letters to a woman who would eventually become his wife. The diary and journal prior to being incarcerated, as well as the letters that he wrote to his lady-friend, became the content for this book.
