In this work, I excised all of the headlines in the NY Times from 1981-2011 related to corporate crimes committed by the 11 most prominent banks in the United States.  These include Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase, Morgan Stanley, Citigroup, and AIG, among others.  The crimes detailed in the headlines include fraud, insider trading, money laundering, bribery, conspiracy, perjury, and obstruction of justice.  The headlines are color-coded by corporation.  Companies with more headlines are highlighted in a darker green and those with less in a lighter shade of green.
