Do white collar crimes result in state or federal charges?

This depends on the nature of the crime committed. Less severe white collar crimes will likely be tried in state court. If the crime involved federal or government property, involve financial institutions or the use of the mail, internet or other communication system, it is likely that you will be charged in federal court. You may face both state and federal charges in some cases.

Will I have to pay restitution to victims if I am convicted?

If the court decides that this is necessary, yes. Payment of restitution as a penalty depends on a variety of factors, including the specific circumstances of your case, the prosecutor, the jury, and the judge presiding over your trial.
