Mail Fraud & Wire Fraud Defense
Mail Fraud & Wire Fraud
Fraud schemes may be prosecuted in either state or federal courts — although most are ultimately charged in federal courts. Mail fraud and wire fraud are always charged in federal court. The FBI, SEC, and other federal agencies have units that specifically focus on interstate and international fraud investigations. The Wyatt Law Office routinely represents those charged with a variety of fraudulent schemes, conspiracies and other white collar crimes. While we are a small law firm, our practice focuses on these types of charges. Unlike many large firms, we don’t dabble in criminal law. We defend those charged with crimes, and that is virtually ALL that we do and we win.
Mail fraud can be charged in any criminal case where the U.S. Mails or other common carriers (UPS, FedEx, etc.) are used to further the criminal act.
Mail fraud is punishable by up to 20 years in federal prison, or if it involves a Presidentially declared disaster, then the punishment range is up to 30 years.
Essentially, wire fraud is the use of interstate wires (i.e., telephone or Internet) to facilitate a criminal scheme to defraud.
If the crime involves a Presidentially declared disaster, then the punishment range is up to 30 years; otherwise, the punishment range is zero to 20 years.
