Mail & Wire Fraud Overview
Federal mail and wire fraud crimes are serious offenses that can result in severe legal consequences. These crimes are defined as any scheme to defraud or obtain money or property through mail or wire communication, including phone, fax, or email.
The types of mail and wire fraud schemes can vary widely, from financial fraud to identity theft and everything in between.
If you or a loved one has been convicted of mail or wire fraud, it is important to work with an experienced federal appellate attorney who can help you understand the nuances of the law and effectively challenge your conviction.
Grounds for Appealing Mail & Wire Fraud Convictions and Sentences
The federal appellate process allows you to challenge the legal and factual basis of your conviction and sentence to obtain a more favorable outcome.
Some potential grounds for appealing mail and wire fraud convictions and sentences include:
- Insufficient evidence — If the government did not present enough evidence to prove all the elements of the offense beyond a reasonable doubt, you might be able to appeal on the grounds of insufficient evidence.
- Jury misconduct — If the jury engaged in misconduct or was improperly influenced, such as through outside information or bias, you may be able to appeal on the grounds of jury misconduct.
- Prosecutorial misconduct — If the prosecutor engaged in misconduct, such as withholding evidence or presenting false testimony, you might be able to appeal on the grounds of prosecutorial misconduct.
- Improper jury instructions — If the instructions were unclear, incomplete, or incorrect, you might be able to appeal on the grounds of improper jury instructions.
- Ineffective assistance of counsel — If your attorney provided ineffective assistance, such as failing to investigate or present relevant evidence or to advise you properly about your rights and options, you might be able to appeal on the grounds of ineffective assistance of counsel.
It is important to work with experienced federal appeals lawyers who can help you identify the most promising grounds for appeal and effectively argue your case before the appellate court.
