Military Law Attorney: Serving Military Members Nationwide
What constitutes a fraud crime?
Fraud comprises a wide variety of offenses from forgery, counterfeiting, making a false claim or presenting one for approval or payment to fraudulent enlistment, appointment or separation. When an individual uses deceit to illegally take another person’s property or services, he or she can be charged with a fraud offense. You can also be accused of fraud if you misrepresent yourself in such a way as to make a person believe something that is not true or factual. In many cases, you can be found guilty regardless of the success or not of a plan or attempt.
In order to prove fraud, your intention to unlawfully deprive someone of their services, money or property must be shown. A prosecutor must be able to demonstrate that you knew the information you gave was fraudulent or false. A knowledgeable attorney can, many times, make use of this essential factor of intent to successfully defend you.
If you are charged, you have the right to counsel that is appointed by the military. Frequently, this individual is inexperienced, under stress from command and does not have the wherewithal to provide a winning military criminal defense.
