Helping You Understand Mail and Wire Fraud Charges
To be charged with mail fraud, the prosecution must show that piece of mail involved was sent across state lines. To be charged with wire fraud, the scheme to defraud someone must have been committed through wire, radio or television — this includes any fraudulent activity occurring through the Internet. Mail and wire fraud prosecutions are generally successful due to the definition of the crimes; all the prosecution must show is intent to defraud, not that fraud has actually occurred. If you are facing charges for mail fraud or wire fraud, you will want to reach out to an experienced defense attorney immediately.
Sentencing in Federal Mail and Wire Fraud Cases
When you are charged with mail fraud or wire fraud, the government will also look to any other relevant crimes that it can add on top of the original charge. This is done to enhance the crime, which increases the mandatory minimum sentences as set out in the federal sentencing guidelines. For this reason alone, it is extremely important that you have a strong legal advocate by your side to ensure you are not being charged with irrelevant crimes and that any sentencing you may face appropriately fits the alleged crime.
