Fraud Charges Lawyer
NYC Fraud Charges Lawyer
There are many different types of crimes that fall within the broad category of “fraud” under federal law. As with the charges, the penalties vary significantly, although one thing that many people who face these charges do not realize is that the charge of fraud carries with it a connotation of dishonesty, which can have farther-reaching consequences than a criminal record based on a different type of crime if a person is convicted on a fraud charge.
Many times, a fraud conviction will carry much more weight when a person is dealing with potential employers, financial institutions, and business partners. Many institutions will not deal with an individual with a fraud conviction because that individual is deemed untrustworthy. This is very important to consider when the prosecutor is trying to get the accused to accept a plea deal involving a fraud charge. At Greco Neyland, PC, we understand how a conviction will impact the rest of a person’s life and we aggressively defend you against that outcome.
Fraud crimes can be charged as misdemeanors or felonies, depending on the facts of the case. However, even misdemeanor charges carry with them the risk of jail time. When a court is imposing sentencing in a fraud case, it will increase the severity of the charges if a person has previous convictions involving fraud or other criminal activities.
A fraud conviction may result in a lengthy prison sentence as well as heavy fines.
