Mail Fraud

Mail fraud cases can be very complicated. Mail fraud involves using the postal service to commit an unlawful offense, to include sending false written statements by mail. Charges are most often used to bring a person under federal jurisdiction, and they are usually brought in conjunction with charges that are other serious white collar crimes.Montclair Mail Fraud Lawyer

Penalties Of Mail Fraud

The elements of mail fraud are laid out in United States Code Section 1341, which specifically states, in part, that mail fraud is “a scheme or artifice to defraud, combined with a mailing for the purpose of executing the scheme.” The Federal Government takes the crime of mail fraud very seriously, and accordingly, it deals unsympathetically with this violation, such that violators can be subject to a fine of up to $1,000,000, plus a prison sentence of up to 30 years. Given that fact, it is important to have an experienced and knowledgeable Montclair and New Jersey federal criminal defense lawyer start work on your case as soon as possible.

Important Issues

Important issues, such as the handling of the filing of your case, as well as what charges will be brought against you, are oftentimes decided shortly after your arrest or during the period of investigation. Thus, timely intervention gives your attorney the chance to possibly diminish or dismiss either felony or misdemeanor charges against you prior to your first court appearance. If you need the assistance of a New Jersey criminal mail fraud lawyer, call Lorraine Gauli-Rufo for a consultation.
