Mail Fraud Appellate Attorneys

Mail Fraud Conviction Federal Appellate Lawyers

Criminal appeal attorneys understand that a conviction for mail fraud carries heavy penalties. These cases are generally a complex area of federal criminal law. 

Mail fraud is a federal crime codified by 18 U.S. Code § 1341 and is a common federal charge because it involves use of the mail to commit the fraud. Some individuals mistakenly believe that in order to commit mail fraud, an individual must mail an item with the United States Post Office. This is simply not true. Mail fraud can occur through the use of private or commercial mail carriers.

A conviction for mail fraud carries heavy penalties. In addition to significant fines, a conviction can carry a sentence of up to 20 years in prison for each offense. If the fraud involves an attempt to defraud individuals with regard to a presidentially declared major disaster or emergency, a conviction can carry a prison sentence of up to 30 years. Additionally, a conviction for mail fraud usually involves a conviction for additional criminal acts such as embezzlement or racketeering.
