Have You Been Accused of Fraud in New York?
In the state of New York, fraud is taken extremely seriously and can be tried in both state and federal court. Fraud is often charged harshly and, if you are convicted, you could be facing years — if not decades — in prison. Moreover, fraud cases often involve the federal government’s interests, which means that you could become the target of a federal agency such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Internal Revenue Service, and more. These agencies can perform investigations with or without notifying you, making it highly important to have an experienced attorney in your corner as soon as possible.
Defending Against Fraud Charges
Given the gravity of a conviction, it’s important to find a criminal defense attorney you can trust to look over your case with a fine-tooth comb to examine every element of your case. Fraud requires the prosecution to prove intent beyond a reasonable doubt, absence of consent, and provide evidence that the accused did indeed meet the state of New York’s requirements for fraud.
From procedural details to the evidence the prosecution has against you, a thorough and in-depth examination of your case is crucial when seeking to have your charges dismissed or reduced. An experienced criminal defense attorney may be able to demonstrate that there was an absence of intent to commit a crime, that the accused was entrapped by law enforcement, or that the accused had consent to do the actions of which they are accused.
