Los Angeles Corporate Fraud Attorney
Are You Facing Federal Fraud Criminal Charges?
Corporate fraud, also known as “securities fraud,” is committed when a corporate officer or director makes a material misrepresentation, withholding, or distortion related to stock information (usually pertaining to the value of the stock) or an officer or director unlawfully discloses confidential information related to a stock, and then an individual or entity acts upon the unlawful disclosure of certain confidential stock information. 15 U.S.C. Chapters 2A-2D govern with regards to the appropriate law and punishment for securities fraud. If convicted of corporate fraud you may be facing large fines and/or imprisonment.
Information & Penalties Associated with Corporate Fraud
Corporate fraud is similar to other forms of white collar crimes because the objective is to accomplish a desired result through deception, trickery, and concealment. This type of fraud is a financial crime and has been statutorily regulated for decades.
In order to obtain a conviction for corporate fraud, a federal prosecutor must show evidence that you had intent to deceive, manipulate, or defraud. However, they do not have to prove that you intended to cause harm to the victim of the fraud.
In many cases, the prosecuting attorney will secure a federal indictment from a Federal Grand Jury and charge you not just with corporate fraud, but will also criminally charge with wire fraud, mail fraud, money laundering, RICO crime, and even federal conspiracy.
