Fraud

Fraud offenses can range from relatively simple crimes such as credit card fraud, to wire fraud or mail fraud, all the way to more sophisticated charges like securities fraud. Though each kind of fraud has unique elements and a particular context, the essential parts of a fraud case are often the same from offense to offense.

To convict you of a fraud crime, the government has to prove that you lied, or that you were either participating in a scheme to take something of value from someone else through deceit.

Often, in a fraud case, the biggest issue will be whether the government can prove that you had the intent to either lie or do something deceitful. 

Being accused of fraud is a direct threat to your freedom and your future. With a fraud conviction typically will come large fines, restitution and time in county jail or state prison. Additionally, some forms of fraud are federal offenses, meaning you will face prosecution by federal prosecutors and investigation by federal agencies. These organizations typically have more resources than local law enforcement agencies. Federal prosecutors will pursue maximum penalties under Federal Sentencing Guidelines.
