Fraud Defense Attorney in Dallas

Definition of Fraud in Texas

According to Texas law, fraud refers to any intentional deception that is made for personal gain and/or harms others (physically, financially, or emotionally). There are a number of unique criminal offenses that can be classified as fraud, as well as several civil law violations.

The primary legal elements that the prosecution will focus on in any fraud case are a person's willful deception and the value of money, property, and/or services obtained by fraudulent actions.

Defending All Types of Fraud Charges

Although not a new crime by any means, fraud has evolved as our society, technology, and commerce have changed throughout the years. Now, seemingly more than ever, consumers, business professionals, corporations, and the government are all plagued by fraud. The proliferation of fraud and white collar crimes has sparked widespread efforts to create legislation, increase enforcement, and gain convictions.

Texas law enforces many fraud laws, including some of the most common:

  • Credit card fraud
  • Insurance fraud
  • Welfare fraud (fraudulently obtaining government benefits)
  • Bank fraud
  • Mortgage fraud
  • Securities fraud
  • Identity theft
  • Fraud committed as internet crimes
  • Counterfeiting and criminal simulation
  • Civil law fraud, including fraud committed in business settings
  • Income tax fraud

Fraud Penalties in Texas

Penalties for fraud vary considerably depending on the nature of the crime and the value of the goods, services, or money fraudulently obtained.

In general, penalties for fraud can include:

  • Monetary fines that can be as high as $10,000
  • Jail time ranging from six months to decades in prison
  • Restitution to the victims

Crimes such as criminal simulation, which may include altering an object for sale to make it appear or worth differently that what it is, is typically a Class A misdemeanor. Credit card fraud, on the other hand, is usually a state jail felony. In cases in which fraud is committed against government or financial institutions, alleged offenders may face more serious federal charges.

Aggravating Circumstances

Just as with any theft crime, the value of whatever was fraudulently obtained and a person's criminal record will weigh heavily into sentencing terms. Other aggravating circumstances, including fraud crimes committed against elderly individuals, may also lead to heightened charges and penalties.

Regardless of what your allegations may entail, working with Dallas criminal defense attorneys that can offer you a wide breadth of experience, a multi-disciplinary approach (including backgrounds in civil and business law), and extensive resources can make all the difference in the outcome of your case.
