In order for the Federal court to convict a suspect of internet fraud, they must prove the defendant willfully participated in a scheme and was aware of its fraudulent nature. In addition, the prosecution must prove the defendant used the internet for that purpose. It doesn’t matter if the scheme was successful. Even if no money was obtained, the defendant could be prosecuted based on their intent. This is why it is critical to have an educated attorney who is able to persuade the court with a powerful defense based on experience.
Penalties for internet crime vary based on the specific type of crime, the amount of monetary loss, intended loss, number of people involved, and the use and creation of false identities. Our attorneys are able to handle cases involving numerous charges and do not back down from prosecutors.
