Federal prosecutors bring charges of mail and wire fraud in white collar criminal cases. Under 18 U.S.C. § 1341, if the mails are used in connection with a criminal offense, then mail fraud charges can be brought. Under 18 U.S.C. § 1343, the use of a communication device such as a telephone, cellphone or computer in the commission of a crime can result in wire fraud charges. A person accused of securities fraud or antitrust violations may find themselves facing additional prison time if they allegedly used any of these mediums in the commission of the underlying offense.

Conspiracy Charges and Allegations of Wire and Mail Fraud

Federal prosecutors will often use a conspiracy charge in multidefendant mail and wire fraud cases. The hearsay rules that normally protect a defendant from the statements of others made outside of the courtroom are more relaxed in conspiracy cases. Thus, the out-of-court statements of alleged co-conspirators may be used as evidence against a defendant. We understand these rules and the ways to avoid or minimize their reach.

Defending Our Clients

As former federal prosecutors, we realize that federal investigators sometimes act in an overzealous manner in order to obtain a conviction. As a result, these investigators do not seem to be interested in a fair or complete explanation. Our office can expose inconsistencies and present exculpatory evidence on your behalf in an attempt to prevent or resolve charges.
