What penalties does wire fraud carry?

If an individual uses any type of electronic communication to scheme or devise some type of fraudulent activity with the purposes of gaining money or property, they can be charged with wire fraud. These means could include email, text, phone calls, and even online chats. It is important to understand that each individual electronic communication can be considered a separate wire fraud count, increasing the penalties you face.

The general penalties that wire fraud can bring include:

  • No more than 20 years in federal prison
  • Up to 30 years in prison when it involves financial institutions
  • Potential fines up to $1,000,000

Though the penalties for wire fraud are steep, individuals facing these charges are often up against additional charges and compounded penalties, making a strong and airtight defense all the more vital.

Employ a Strategic Defense in Your Case

Depending on the circumstances surrounding your wire fraud charges, there may be several defense options available in your case. For example, acting in good faith could be a viable defense in certain situations. If you did not have any intention of defrauding someone of property or money, you could be safe from prosecution. You would have to show that you were acting within the requirements imposed by Florida law, that you had no financial motive, or that you attempted to return the person’s property when you realized what happened.

Another common defense is that of constructive fraud. This occurs when fraud is not intentional, but happens out of reckless business conduct, such as failing to disclose important material fact. So long as contemplated loss was not involved, fraud charges may be avoided.

Puffing, or puffery, is another defense that may be used by a wire fraud lawyer. This is more common in consumer fraud, as it often has to do with what a salesperson says to sell a product or item. The defense rests in the idea that the actions were simply exaggerative in nature, not fraudulent. Again, the defense you craft will also depend on the other offenses you have been accused of in conjunction to wire fraud, if any.

Words cannot describe the outstanding jobMr. Gorman did on my husband’s case. The case was not simple or easy, it was just filled with terrible circumstances. An event that could have ruined the lives of our family for years to come. He somehow was able to get some extremely serious charges reduced significantly.....the outcome was far better than we were ever expecting or hoping for. If he at times cannot get back to you right away, it is because he is working his magic. We will never forget him and will forever be thankful to him.read more

Mr. Gorman is nothing short of exceptional. I went to Jeff as a second opinion as I didn't feel my lawyer had my best interest at heart. Upon consultation, I immediately hired Jeff. He was professional, precise, and extremely knowledgeable of all aspects of law. He is nothing short a miracle. Needless to say, I received no jail (facing up to 30 years). Mr. Gorman and staff always kept me informed and fought for me. I would highly recommend him. It doesn't get any better than him.read more

Mr. Gorman is not only a great attorney by in my book, he’s a magician. He defended me on a “VERY SERIOUS” case with multiple charges (I will not mentioned here). From a 25 year sentence in which 17 would had been minimum mandatory, he managed to have serious charges dropped/abandone and was able to get me a deal that I was able to do at home. I hired him on a VOP (Violation Of Probation) for the same case and he was able to have the court reinstate my probation as we had proof that I in fact did not violate probation. Lastly, I hired him once again on an accident case in which I got injured and his attorney, Erika was able to get top dollar for such. I could go on with positive feedback. Overall, I’m 100% satisfied from day one. I won’t call any other attorney as he has proven to work for you every step of the way.read more
