Los Angeles Wire Fraud Lawyer
Charges & Penalties for Wire Fraud
Wire fraud involves an individual carrying out a scheme with the objective of defrauding others by the use of interstate "wires." This may employ many mediums, such as financial wire transfers, the internet, phone, radio or television. It is not necessary that the entire fraudulent scheme that one has devised involve electronic communications in order for wire fraud charges to be filed. Each separate use of the mechanism constructed for such a transfer amounts to an additional count of fraud, which could consequently result in severe consequences, including:
- Up to 30 years in prison
- Fines up to one million dollars
Wire fraud is most commonly charged as a federal crime in the United States District Court. This means that if you are facing such charges, your case will involve federal agents working to achieve a conviction and lengthy prison sentence. A
