What is Wire Fraud?
What is wire fraud first depends on the facts of each case will contribute to the result of federal charges and what conviction and penalties will be imposed. In federal procurement, when you use email, the internet, telephones, fax machines or other equipment to further getting paid for, getting some benefit from the government, small business certification, grants or other benefits, the federal government will build a case under the wire fraud definition and bring criminal charges.
Elements of Proof
For the federal government to prove its case must show some variation of the following wire fraud elements:
- Scheme to defraud by means of false pretenses
- Defendant’s knowing and willful participation in the scheme with intent to defraud, and
- Use of interstate wire communications in furtherance of a scheme.
Wire Fraud Defense
When defending a federal conspiracy to commit wire fraud, especially in a government procurement fraud case, the goal of your wire fraud defense lawyer is to show that the federal prosecutor has not met the wire fraud elements. However, a strong legal defense starts with assessing the strengths and weaknesses of your case as early as possible.
- The further along a criminal investigation is, the harder it is to establish a strong negotiation position.
- Fraud crimes should be dealt with early and defendants must understand the seriousness of the case up front.
- Having your attorney explain various wire fraud charges and the results of a fraud crime can help you make a more educated decision about how you want to proceed.
Help With Government Investigations and Wire Fraud Penalties Negotiations
WE REPRESENT GOVERNMENT CONTRACTORS AND INDIVIDUALS
The federal government and DOJ has increased oversight for finding procurement fraud schemes against the government. Subcontractors are also fertile ground for being hit with criminal charges. Sometimes the prime contractor and the subcontractor can both be a target for conspiracy to commit wire fraud.
Government investigations are usually well underway by the time a federal agent comes knocking on your door. When this happens, corporate executives sometimes wonder what the next step should be, or whether or not they should cooperate with the investigator.
