What is Wire Fraud?
Wire fraud, a federal crime, occurs when one intentionally uses interstate communication systems (such as telephones or internet) to commit financial fraud. Basically, it may constitute a crime to make a phone call or send an email to another state or country.
There is hardly a federal criminal case without this charge. What the federal prosecutors would need to prove is that there is some sort of logical connection between a communication act and a fraudulent scheme and that the person willfully participated in the fraudulent conduct in the act.
What is the Penalty for Wire Fraud in NY?
A wire fraud conviction could lead to hefty penalties, possibly severe fines, and up to 20 years imprisonment per count in New York. If the case involves a financial institution, the maximum imprisonment term in federal prison can be 30 years, with a fine of up to $1 million.
Breaking Down Federal Wire Fraud Charges
Wire fraud typically consists of three elements or counts. The defendant must have 1) devised or intended to devise a scheme to defraud, 2) used interstate wire or electronic communications, in the course of the scheme, and 3) done it with the intent to deceive or defraud. Any one of these counts alone could carry significant legal consequences.
The potential for punitive action in wire fraud cases under criminal law is immense, but the severity of the punishment varies. Not everyone accused of wire fraud ends up serving jail time. Many factors come into play, such as the nature of the crime, the amount of money involved, prior convictions, and the quality of the defense.
Defending Against a Wire Fraud Charge
When faced with federal wire fraud allegations, the primary investigator is usually the FBI, alongside other agencies of the federal government. The gravity of such investigations necessitates engaging experienced legal help.
