Strong Advocate against Fraud, Criminal Conspiracy, and Federal Charges
Simply speaking, fraud is any crime that involves an element of deceit, trickery, or breach of confidence committed in order to gain an unfair and/or dishonest advantage, which is usually financial in nature. From identity theft to money laundering to bankruptcy fraud, most of these charges are serious state offenses that usually have a federal counterpart. A conviction for fraud, such as for mortgage or real estate fraud, in Palm Beach County can come with severe consequences at the state level that include prison time, fines, civil penalties, and civil liability for any damage done.
Though unusual, it is not impossible for a West Palm Beach fraud offense that is also a federal crime to be charged at the state level as well. Federal charges are not necessarily better or worse than state charges, but they are different and often complex. They are governed by different laws, rules, and procedures and federal court has a different environment than state-governed courts. Many federal charges involve some element of criminal conspiracy (also sometimes known as racketeering), which is when a group of alleged offenders work together to commit one or more crimes on a large scale.
With all federal charges, including criminal conspiracy, it’s best to hire a lawyer experienced in these cases rather than a lawyer who has never fought a federal case before. In any major drug case or fraud case, it is also important to consider an experienced federal charge defense attorney for your Florida criminal case, as the federal charges could be pursued in addition to or in lieu of your state case at any point. Andrew Stine is an experienced Palm Beach County federal attorney who knows what it takes to protect you in federal court.
