Fraud Charges in Palm Beach
Criminal Defense Lawyer for Fraud Charges in Florida
As defined by criminal law, fraud is the act of intentionally deceiving another in order to obtain personal gain, usually of a monetary value. This is a civil law violation that will be charged as a white collar crime and punished as such. Many types of fraud exist for which a person can be accused and some of these include: bank fraud,
embezzlement, forgery, insurance fraud, moving scams, marriage fraud, securities fraud,
tax fraud, etc. The list is extensive and seemingly never-ending.
The penalties you could incur if convicted of fraudulent behavior will vary depending on the conditions of your case, but in general you can expect to face substantial fines that will reflect the amount of lost damages that resulted from your fraud charges. In addition, you may face even more fines purely based on the criminal nature of your offense; sometimes, this can cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars. Jail time is another common penalty that should be prepared for if fraud charges are made in your name.
