Being charged with federal fraud can be an incredibly stressful and scary experience. As a lawyer whose represented people facing these kinds of allegations, I want to provide you with some advice on steps you can take to protect yourself and build the strongest case possible.
First things first – don’t panic! I know the initial shock of being charged with a federal crime can be overwhelming, but you need to try to stay calm. Take some deep breaths and don’t do anything rash. Your judgement is clouded when your anxious or afraid.
Other than your lawyer, do not discuss the allegations against you with anyone – not even close family members. Anything you say about the case can potentially be used against you later. So keep quiet!
You need to hire a lawyer who has extensive experience defending complex white collar federal cases. Don’t go with your buddy whose a local DUI attorney. Federal fraud cases are highly complex and the stakes are high. Find an attorney whose successfully defended major fraud cases before.
Once you hire a lawyer you trust, listen to their advice! Don’t go rogue and make choices that could negatively impact your case against their counsel. Your lawyer has your best interests in mind.
Work closely with your attorney to understand exactly what your being charged with. There are many different federal fraud statutes, including:wire fraud, bank fraud, conspiracy to commit fraud, embezzlement, and more. The specific allegations will impact your defense strategy.
I know your instinct may be to try and hide any evidence that could implicate you. Fight that urge! Destroying evidence can lead to an obstruction of justice charge. Be upfront with your attorney so they can properly defend you.
Your attorney may assess the evidence against you and determine your best option is taking a plea deal. While not ideal, a plea can result in a lighter sentence vs. risking trial. Be open to their advice.
If no plea is offered or you reject a deal, the case will head to trial. Your lawyer will work diligently to exclude prejudicial evidence and build a strong defense. You’ll likely take the stand, so prepare to clearly explain yourself.
Federal fraud sentences are based on “guidelines” that take into account factors like financial loss and your criminal history. Your attorney can explain potential sentences so your prepared.
Your lawyer may argue for alternatives to jail including probation, house arrest, or community service. This depends on the case facts and your background.
