About Wire Fraud

In order to get convicted of wire fraud, the prosecution must prove that (1) you intentionally or voluntarily created or participated in a fraud scheme, (2) you had the intention to commit fraud, (3) it was reasonably foreseeable that you will use interstate wire communications to commit or further the fraud scheme, and (4) you used such wire communications. The wire service must have been used to make either false statements, misleading information, or inaccurate promises in order to deprive someone of money, property, or anything of value.

What are the Penalties for Wire Fraud?

Wire fraud is punishable by a maximum federal prison sentence of 20 years and a fine not exceeding $250,000. However, if the fraud scheme involved money or benefits related to a nationwide major emergency, then a conviction will result in federal imprisonment for up to 30 years and a maximum fine of $1 million.

What is the Good Faith Defense for Wire Fraud?

There are many defenses we can use for wire fraud but the main element we like to focus on is the "intent" aspect of the crime. The prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you had intent to commit fraud. However, courts have recognized that you cannot be guilt of wire fraud if you can prove that you truly believed the statements that later turned out to be false. This is known as the "good faith" defense.
