A defendant may face legal proceedings in civil and/or criminal court involving fraud. Fraud is a criminal offense and a defendant may therefore be at risk of imprisonment, fines and other penalties if convicted in criminal court. These charges are brought against the defendant by the government. The victim(s) of fraud may also file charges against the defendant in civil court, seeking monetary compensation for their alleged losses. As fraud may have civil and criminal repercussions for a defendant, seeking legal counsel is all the more important in these matters. Make sure you waste no time in involving an attorney who can work to protect your legal rights and your interests in order to help you avoid imprisonment in state prison, fines, probation, victim restitution and much more.
