Ellis County Fraud Defense Lawyer
Have You Been Charged with Fraud?
Fraud offenses can range from relatively simple crimes such as credit card fraud to wire fraud or mail fraud, all the way to more sophisticated charges like securities fraud. Though each type of fraud has unique elements and a particular context, the essential parts of a fraud case are the same from offense to offense.
If you've been charged with fraud, the government has to prove that you lied, or that you were either participating in a scheme to take something of value from someone else through deceit. As a dedicated and experienced Ellis County criminal defense attorney, I can help you to handle these charges.
Fighting for Your Rights
Often, in a fraud case, the biggest issue will be whether the government can prove that you had the intent to either lie or do something deceitful. Experienced defense lawyers know to look closely at the evidence the government has that goes to what was in the defendant's mind and find gaps in the evidence to create reasonable doubt for the jury. Fraud cases are not to be taken lightly - if someone is convicted of a single count of bank fraud, for example, they can go to prison for 30 years.
There is a broad variety of different types of fraud, according to chapter 32 of the penal code, the most common of which include:
- Identity theft
- Credit card fraud
