If the U.S Attorney’s Office has charged you with Bank Fraud, whether as a key player in a large investment scheme or bad check scheme, or if you are only a charged with playing a small role in a business fraud, you need the knowledge, skill and understanding of an experienced criminal defense lawyer. He can help you unravel the complicated case the government is constructing and help you successfully reduce the potential for lengthy imprisonment, loss of career and ruined reputation that can be associated with a conviction for Bank Fraud.
What Is It?
Bank Fraud can be prosecuted in a couple of ways. A charge can be based on the theft or embezzlement of funds by a bank employee, or a scheme to defraud the bank based on false statements, like over-valuing property or securities. A charge may also be based on a scheme to defraud, like a scheme based on false loan applications and the misuse of loaned funds or non-existent collateral. Penalties for Bank Fraud can include fines up to $1,000,000.00 (One Million Dollars) and/or imprisonment up to 30 years.
Often, the government begins its investigation before the accused has a chance to retain a lawyer. The prosecution has had the opportunity to review documents and records and to build its case before the accused is made aware of impending charges. They may even try to intimidate a person with the hope of getting him to provide information. In these situations, it is crucial that you speak with an experienced white collar criminal defense attorney before you say or do anything.
