Accusations of mail fraud can swirl around like snowflakes, but it’s usually only a matter of time before the dusting turns into a blizzard of felony charges. Investigations by U.S. Postal Inspectors, the FBI, the IRS, or other federal agencies can quickly snowball. Before you know it, you may be facing the prospect of 20 years in prison and tens of thousands of dollars n fines. Convictions on charges involving financial institutions carry even stiffer penalties – a glacial three decades in prison and up to $1 million in fines.
An accusation of mail fraud involves three elements: the intention to defraud, a plan to swindle others, and a mailing that crosses state lines using, for example, the U.S. Postal Service, UPS, or FedEx. A mail fraud accusation is often tacked on to other white-collar criminal charges, such as healthcare fraud, bank fraud, tax evasion, or securities fraud.
If you’re buried under a flurry of federal felony charges, you need a snowplow – fast. Time is NOT on your side. Superior Law Center works diligently to close investigations and avoid arrests and indictments. When a case proceeds, we are often able to negotiate a civil penalty and a short probationary period in lieu of a felony trial. When necessary, we may craft a defense based on a good faith belief or puffery.
Remember – time is of the essence. Do NOT speak to investigators. They won’t protect your rights. We will. Call Superior Law Center TODAY for a free, no-obligation consultation.
