During your initial evaluation, our team can help you prepare your case and give you all the information you need.

How Fraud is Charged in California

The crime of fraud often involves the use of someone else’s finances. Two common ways this can be done is via check or credit card. Fraud, however, encompasses a whole family of crimes that involve committing an act that:

  • Results in an unfair or unearned benefit to you
  • Causes another to lose something or be harmed

Since these crimes are “wobblers,” the defendant can be charged with a misdemeanor or felony depending on certain elements and how the case is handled.

Keep in mind that the attorney you get and whether or not the lawyer can effectively show the DA’s office the following, will have a huge impact on the outcome:

  • Who you are as a person
  • Your lack of a prior record

Fraud is a “Specific Intent” Crime

Fraud crimes are handled very seriously in the state of California. As a specific intent crime, the state will aggressively fight to show that you had intent and that as a result, you are guilty of the crime of fraud. They will, however, have to prove this in order to win their case.

This also means that building a defense can be accomplished if you work with a team of knowledgeable attorneys. By showing that you or your accused loved one did not have specific intent to commit the act, we can show that you never meant to receive an unfair advantage or to cause loss to another through your alleged actions.
