Being accused of fraud is a direct threat to your freedom and your future. With a fraud conviction typically will come large fines, restitution and time in county jail or state prison. Additionally, some forms of fraud are federal offenses, meaning you will face prosecution by federal prosecutors and investigation by federal agencies. These organizations typically have more resources than local law enforcement agencies. Federal prosecutors will pursue maximum penalties under Federal Sentencing Guidelines.
