Wire Fraud And Mail Fraud

Wire fraud and mail fraud can severely affect a victim's financial well-being, which is why prosecutors and judges take a hard line when these charges are filed. The penalties attached to a wire or mail fraud conviction are serious, as each count may carry up to a $250,000 fine and a substantial prison sentence. As a result, if you are convicted of sending three fraudulent emails or letters, you could face up to $750,000 fine in addition to your prison time.

Successfully challenging mail or wire fraud charges takes an extensive understanding of federal laws and the criminal process. Criminal defense attorney Christopher Wellborn has decades of trial experience in courts throughout South Carolina. He draws on this background when advocating for defendants confronting straightforward and intricate criminal matters.

Aggressively Combating The Charges

Mail fraud and wire fraud charges are often added to other charges to dramatically increase penalties defendants could receive after a conviction. Chris Wellborn knows how to contest these charges and others that are associated with this type of fraud, including:

  • Telecommunications fraud
  • Identify theft
  • Ponzi schemes
  • Embezzlement
  • Internet fraud

Individuals who unwittingly participate in mail or wire fraud may be charged with aiding and abetting this crime. It is not rare for employees to be charged with these offenses when they were merely following a supervisor's instructions.

Mr. Wellborn understands that each white collar case is unique and will tailor an aggressive strategy based on the facts of your case. He is the tireless trial lawyer you can count on to face complex criminal charges.
