Top Rated Federal Bank Fraud Attorneys In Las Vegas, Reno And Los Angeles Ready To Defend Your Rights
Sometimes innocent people get caught up in a bad situation. Las Vegas Bank Fraud Lawyer Paul Padda and The Federal Defenders handle all matters relating to these charges.
A favorite crime federal prosecutors love to charge is “bank fraud” because of the broad nature of the criminal statute.
The federal bank fraud statute, 18 U.S.C. § 1344, requires the government to prove that a person acted intentionally to either:
1. Defraud a financial institution, or
2. Obtain “money, funds, credits, assets, securities or other property owned by or under the custody or control of a financial institution by means of false or fraudulent pretenses, representations or promises.”
Given the very broad language in this statute, “bank fraud” can apply to numerous situations and does not mean a person simply defrauded a bank. Any fraud that involves an attempt to obtain money or assets under the control of a “financial institution” by means of false statements can be bank fraud.
Since almost all money is under the control of some type of financial institution, bank fraud is a very broad crime. Bank fraud is also a very serious crime that can carry a maximum statutory penalty of 30 years in jail.
