Los Angeles Mail Fraud Attorney

Criminal Lawyer Defending Federal Crimes

If you are being investigated for mail fraud the investigation is going to revolve around two specific points:

  • Did one willfully and intentionally devise or intend to devise a scheme or means to defraud another person of money or property
  • Was the fraud carried out using the postal system in some way

Mail fraud is covered by Title 18 of the United States Code. This statute is often used as a basis for a separate federal prosecution of what would otherwise have been only a violation of a state law. Being investigated or charged with mail fraud is a serious federal offense and it is vital that anyone being investigated for it obtain the help of a capable Los Angeles criminal defense attorney that can fully assist you regarding the allegations.

Fighting Federal Charges in Los Angeles

Prosecutors and investigators will be aggressive in pursuing charges and it can be a fairly long, drawn out and nerve wracking process. If an individual is convicted of mail fraud they face stiff fines or imprisonment for up to 20 years, or both. If the violation affects a financial institution like a bank, the fine can go as high as $1,000,000 or imprisonment up to 30 years, or both.
