What are the Penalties for Wire Fraud in Virginia?

In Virginia, the penalties for wire fraud are severe and can have long-lasting effects on your personal and professional life. If convicted, you may face imprisonment, substantial fines, restitution to victims, and the forfeiture of ill-gotten gains. The severity of the penalties underscores the importance of securing legal representation from a team with a proven track record in handling wire fraud cases.

Defenses Against Wire Fraud Charges

Some common defenses against wire fraud charges may include:

  • Lack of Intent: Demonstrating that there was no intent to defraud is a powerful defense. We can meticulously analyze the evidence to establish that any actions were taken without the requisite criminal intent.
  • Insufficient Evidence: We can scrutinize the prosecution's evidence to identify weaknesses, inconsistencies, or lapses in the investigative process. Challenging the sufficiency of the evidence can create reasonable doubt and strengthen your defense.
  • Illegal Search and Seizure: If law enforcement had violated your constitutional rights during the investigation, we can aggressively challenge any evidence obtained through illegal search and seizure, seeking to have it excluded from the case.
  • Duress or Coercion: In some cases, individuals may engage in wire fraud under duress or coercion. We can explore all potential defenses, including establishing that you were compelled to commit the alleged offense under threat or pressure.
