Penalties For Fraudulent Schemes

Even for a first-time offender, a prison sentence of up to 12.5 years is legally available.  Indeed, if the total amount of loss exceeds $100,000.00, a prison sentence is mandatory; even for a first-time offender.  For a person with at least two allegeable prior felony convictions, prison sentences can be as long as 35 years.  However, depending on many factors such as the amount of any loss, the presence of accomplices, the characteristics of the victim, past criminal history and many others, probation may be available and warranted. – Fraud Attorney Phoenix

YOU CAN’T BE CONVICTED OF A FRAUD SCHEME UNLESS THE PROSECUTOR PROVES THE REQUIRED MENTAL STATE.

Before a criminal defendant can be convicted of a Fraud Scheme or other white collar crime, the prosecutor is required to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant committed the crime either intentionally or knowingly; not by accident or negligently.  In some cases, this Mens Rea or “mental state” requirement cannot be proven by the prosecutor. This can provide a viable defense for the person accused of a fraud scheme or white collar crime.  It could be possible that an accused person didn’t know they were actually defrauding someone.  In such a case, there is no crime.

Additionally, the crime of Fraud Schemes requires that the accused actually obtains some benefit.  As such, to defend against a Fraud Scheme, the criminal defense attorney will seek to investigate whether the accused actually obtained some benefit.  If not, there is no Fraud Scheme.
