MN Criminal Defense Attorney Can Help with Wire Fraud Cases

December 02, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ - Birrell Law Firm, based in Minneapolis, MN, has announced that they can provide a criminal defense lawyer who can help people in Minnesota who have been charged with wire fraud. It should be noted that federal prosecutors are aggressive in prosecuting fraud cases. Oftentimes, they will charge a person with both mail and wire fraud. For these cases, the prosecution will need to prove that the person had specific intent to defraud. Since these are often complicated cases, having a skilled and experienced MN wire fraud attorney can make a lot of difference.

Ian Birrell, a partner at the law firm, says, “It is important to note that wire fraud is a federal crime that carries a sentence of not more than 20 years’ imprisonment and fines of up to $250,000 for individuals and $500,000 for organizations. Having the skilled dedicated wire fraud attorneys from Birrell Criminal Defense, fighting wire or mail fraud charges on your behalf can make a difference. These are complicated fact intensive matters that need to be handled carefully. Please do not hesitate to contact us to speak with a lawyer about your situation in a private setting to see how we can help you.”

The Birrell Criminal Defense attorneys also want people to realize that it is not necessary for the prosecution to show that a person has personally sent a fraudulent communication or actually defrauded someone. It is enough for them to prove that there was an intent to defraud or the person acted with knowledge of fraudulent communications being sent.

There are a number of typical examples of wire fraud. These include Ponzi schemes, stealing money or property by using a scheme or artifice, pyramid schemes, money laundering, check kiting schemes, tax evasion, Internet fraud, and embezzlement.
