Fraud charges in North Carolina

Because of the popularity of law and crime dramas on television, many people might feel that they are well-versed in a variety of criminal issues. However, much of the law is nuanced and complicated. Those facing charges will likely want the assistance of an attorney with knowledge and experience concerning such cases. Fraud charges, for example, encompass a variety of different alleged acts and could result in serious consequences if a person in North Carolina is convicted.

At the basis of a fraud case is the intent to achieve personal or monetary gain through deception. Simply put, a fraudulent act is intended to obtain something of value -- such as property -- by knowingly providing information that is known or believed to be false.  Fraud can involve telemarketers, banks and identity theft among other types.

In order to prove such accusations, prosecutors must meet several criteria. To start, it must be shown that a person knowingly misrepresented a fact to someone who relied on the false information provided. As a result of that misrepresentation, a loss or injury occurred. A person or business can be a perpetrator or a victim of such acts. Charges related to fraud are typically considered felonies, and a conviction could result in imprisonment, probation, fines or some combination of the three.

Everyone who faces fraud or other criminal charges have certain rights that must be protected while navigating the criminal justice system. Unfortunately, the average person in North Carolina has little experience with the law and may not be fully aware of what constitutes unlawful treatment. Fortunately, an attorney can examine the details of a case and ensure lawful treatment and/or take action if a person's rights are violated.
