Wire Fraud Defense

Atlanta White Collar Crime Attorneys


Wire fraud is a very common federal crime. As with many other kinds of fraud (e.g. mail and bank fraud) the prosecution usually adds wire fraud as a catch all alternative to help bolster the prosecution. Wire fraud charges are usually brought against someone after a lengthy investigation has been conducted by federal agencies in tandem with the Department of Justice. Due to the nature of these offenses and charges it is highly recommended to retain a white-collar crime criminal defense attorney with experience in this area. The federal government has extensive resources at their disposal as compared to a local jurisdiction, so you need a strong defense team and strategy to fight against these charges and accusations.

Accusations like these can put your future at risk not to mention your reputation and freedom. When your life and career are at stake, retaining a law firm like the Arora Law Firm, with its expert attorneys, is necessary.

What is Wire Fraud?

As mentioned above, wire fraud is almost exclusively brought by federal prosecutors and is a serious felony. Federal crimes are punished severely and have permanent consequences. It is illegal to use wired devices (e.g. telephone, radio, fax, email, apps, or any other form of electronic communication) to defraud someone. Knowingly using these means of communication to defraud someone through false pretenses, representations, or promises, is what the government defines as wire fraud.

Unlike charges levied against someone at the state level, these white-collar crime offenses are seen as more severe for 3 main reasons. 1) Judges are seen as more strict in federal cases and depending on the offense (based upon the federal sentencing guidelines); 2) federal investigations have more resources at their disposal than state counterparts; and 3) charges are brought forth with other fraud charges.

Justifications for bringing Wire Fraud charges against an individual are usually 2-pronged. The first is the government alleging the existence of a scheme to defraud individuals or companies. The second is the use of electronic communications like those described above. A key third component needs to be proved by the prosecution. That’s the component of willful participation in the scheme by the defendant.
