Consequences of a fraud conviction can include jail or prison time and expensive fines. In addition to these penalties, your personal and professional reputation is at risk because fraud is considered a “crime of moral turpitude.” This means that you are considered to have violated basic social norms and may be considered an untrustworthy or immoral person by individuals or employers who become aware of your situation.
There are several possible defenses against charges of fraud. For example, if there was a misunderstanding and you did not intend to commit fraud or if you were the victim of mistaken identity, then we may work to have your charges reduced or dismissed. During your free consultation, we will ask questions to gain an understanding of your situation and try to determine your best options going forward.
