Defending Against Federal Wire Fraud Charges

In federal wire fraud cases, the U.S. Attorney will seek an indictment formally charging you with this crime. This happens when the prosecution believes it has evidence of a fraudulent scheme that uses interstate electronic wire communications in its commission. The definition of wire communications is broad enough to include wire transfers of money to or from a financial institution, radio and television communications, and email or any communications via computer modem.

If convicted of federal wire fraud, you could face a 20-30 year federal prison sentence and fines of up to $1,000,000. Because the charges for wire fraud are so severe, it is crucial to hire a competent federal criminal defense lawyer to help you determine your legal strategy.
