Wire Fraud & Bank Fraud

Trust an Experienced Wire Fraud Attorney

Wire fraud is the use of any type of electronic communication—including phones, fax, email, the internet ,TV or radio to conduct fraud. This could be a scheme to get money from someone else without delivering goods, or to deceive other people to get money or credit, such as mortgage or credit card fraud. Wire fraud can also include banking fraud.

The Government has to prove that a person charged with wire fraud had the intent to defraud. An excellent defense can be showing another motive for the transaction. Known as “good faith,” where we can show that a person acted with good faith then that person cannot be found guilty of wire fraud. There are other defenses to a wire fraud charge, which can be highly effective as well. The defense is based upon the particular facts and circumstances of a case, and we will discuss those when we speak.

If you’ve been charged with wire or bank fraud, it’s crucial to seek the advice of a wire fraud attorney as soon as possible. Wire fraud is a serious crime and can be punished at both the state and federal level, particularly if it involves people in different states. At Owens Criminal Defense, we have over 15 years of experience defending clients accused of wire fraud and bank fraud.

Punishment for Wire or Bank Fraud

If you’re convicted of either wire fraud or bank fraud, you may be ordered to pay fines or restitution to any victims of the crime. You may also be sentenced to federal prison, and the length of the sentence will be dependent on the severity of the crime. If you’re convicted of wire or bank fraud against a financial institution, you may be sentenced to even more prison time and fines. For people who have been convicted of wire fraud on the federal level, there’s no parole for a prison sentence—you must serve the entire term.

Our strategy is to seize the initiative from the start, and never relent. What this means for you is that we will demand the government comply with the rules of criminal procedure and respect your constitutional rights. When the government fails to do so, we will file motions and put the government’s non-compliance before a judge. This strategy is what we call aggressive defense. This strategy over the years has proven to keep the government on the defensive and yields extremely favorable results.

We approach each case as if it is going to proceed to trial. This means we investigate the case fully and thoroughly to find all of the errors in the police reports. This is essential to developing our defensive theory. We will visit the alleged crime scene, speak with witnesses, research case law and statutes, file motions and argue the motions to a judge. It is through this process that we develop our theory of the case.

We are skilled and relentless trial attorneys. We have tried dozens of cases to a jury, including several murder cases.
