Wire Fraud

Often times the Department of Justice and the U.S. Attorneys’ Office will try to wrap every alleged taking of money into a theory of wire fraud. This is where we step in. While it is true that the federal criminal courts have liberally construed criminal statutes governing mail fraud and wire fraud to include other crimes, often times the prosecution tries to stretch it too far. This is where a shrewd and dedicated Criminal Attorney, fighting wire fraud charges, can make a difference. A well pleaded motion to dismiss, assuming the prosecutor has met her discovery demands, can sometimes knock off the top counts from the indictment.
