Complex Fraud Charges That Are Included With Other Crimes

Mail fraud charges – like wire fraud charges – are often added to other related charges. These are fraud charges that must be taken seriously. It is important to note that in a mail fraud case, the use of the postal service is not required as a central part of the fraud. It only requires that the postal service be used as a part of other crimes. For example, mail fraud charges could be included as federal criminal charges for something as simple as mailing envelopes or receiving mailed money from alleged victims. In other words, the use of the postal service only has to be loosely connected to the crime in order to be included as a charge.

In addition, charges are usually leveled for each mailing sent. You could easily be charged in association with other crimes, including:

  • Drug and narcotics crimes
  • Identity theft
  • Bank and financial fraud, like pyramid schemes
  • Child pornography
  • Credit card fraud

Due to the combination of criminal charges, a guilty verdict could result in significant jail time, fines and other harsh punishments. Our experienced New York City federal criminal defense attorneys at Sapone & Petrillo, LLP regularly defend clients from criminal charges in federal court. Our experienced trial lawyers know how the case against you will be built and can use that knowledge to build a strong defense on your behalf.
