Fraudulent schemes are sometimes referred to as white collar crimes. These are typically nonviolent offenses involving the theft of property or services by means of false or fraudulent representations, promises or material omissions. According to. A.R.S. §13-2310 If you are charged with a fraudulent scheme, you will most likely face a class 2 felony charge. Theft of property or services worth $100,000 or more is a also class 2 felony, and the person may not be eligible for suspension of sentence, probation, pardon or release from confinement until the sentence has been served.
Our team here at Chuck Franklin Law provides experienced defense against theft and fraud charges in Arizona. My attorneys work together to investigate allegations and build a viable defense. Clients benefit from our combined legal experience of 40 years. It is not uncommon for white collar criminal cases to go to trial, you can rely on our trial experience and our willingness to fight for your rights. If you are under investigation for fraud, working with an attorney early in the process may prevent charges from being filed and reduce your exposure.
If charges have already been filed, there are a number of defenses which can be used to fight them. One of the strongest defenses is showing that you did not knowingly defraud anyone. If your alleged fraud was caused by tasks assigned to you by your boss, and you did not know what you were doing was illegal, we could fight to prove that you did not know that you were defrauding anyone. Our investigators will also look into the alleged victim, to ensure that their claims are real, and not an attempt to shift blame for something they did wrong onto you. While there are a number of defenses for Fraudulent Schemes charges, each case is different and it can take time to fully investigate and build a defense for a case. If you have been charged for Fraudulent Schemes, you should contact an experienced criminal defense law firm as soon as possible to fight for your rights.
To be convicted of a fraudulent scheme, a person must intentionally or knowingly defraud another party. I will work to prove that there was no scheme or artifice to defraud. Depending on the case, I may be able to prove that law enforcement misinterpreted a situation as intentional fraud when in fact it is simply a civil matter.
I can defend you against charges such as:
Regardless of the type of fraud you are charged with committing, the prosecution must prove that you had fraudulent intent. I will work to demonstrate that there was no fraudulent intent. In some circumstances, a mistake in accounting procedures or faulty record keeping can be mistaken for intentional acts of fraud.
