Bank Fraud Defense Attorney in St. Louis

What Can I Expect with a Bank Fraud Charge?

Bank fraud charges are nothing to be taken lightly. This is considered to be a federal crime that will ultimately be prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Federal Court. This means that no matter which state you live in, you will be held accountable to the federal law regarding this crime. Being arrested for a crime is a frightening and stressful experience and it could put your entire future at risk if you were to be convicted.

Penalties for a Bank Fraud Conviction

A bank fraud conviction is punishable by up to 30 years in prison and a fine up to $1,000,000, not to mention it would be nearly impossible to find gainful employment in the future. When facing a serious federal crime of this nature, you will need a hard-hitting white collar crime lawyer who understands the way the criminal justice system works and who has experience on a federal level. Speak with a St. Louis white collar crime attorney for the aggressive representation you need to beat your charges.
