Understanding and Fighting Mail and Wire Fraud Indictments
In order to be able to prosecute an individual or business in the federal justice system, the prosecution needs to establish federal court jurisdiction over the case. One of the most common ways this is done is by including a mail fraud or wire fraud charge in the indictment.
- Mail fraud charges involve the use of the U.S. mail to commit a fraud offense.
- Wire fraud is the use of a telephone, the Internet or a fax machine to commit fraud.
Between the two of them, these charges are used to prosecute a wide range of alleged fraudulent schemes and other white collar crimes. If you have been charged with one of these offenses, we can help you understand and pursue your federal criminal defense options.
