Defending Allegations of Fraud at the State Level

Law enforcement agents and prosecutors are devoting increased resources to enforcing and prosecuting fraud charges. These crimes — which often involve the use of computers, the Internet and other technologies — can be relatively straightforward to track. This is especially the case when there is a paper trail of receipts, Internet connection histories, canceled checks and the like to follow.

It is a serious matter to be convicted of identity theft or any type of property offense (theft) in Oregon. Once you have one conviction on your criminal record, you may then become eligible for a mandatory penitentiary sentence if you are ever convicted of a second property offense.

For that reason, it is critically important to enlist the help of knowledgeable criminal defense attorneys. Even if you have not yet been charged, if you have reason to believe you are under investigation, the intervention of a criminal defense lawyer can improve your situation immensely.
