Practice Areas: Fraud Over $5,000

Fraud is categorized under the Criminal Code into two main categories – fraud under $5,000, and fraud over $5,000. These are considered property offences, and while they usually occur in multiple instances, some can be serious in nature.

The potential penalties for fraud can depend on the nature of the offence, but can include fines or imprisonment depending on the circumstances.

Fraud charges are based primarily on evidence and police searches. The right defence lawyer will examine all of the evidence presented, as well as how the police conducted their search, in order to properly assess your best defence strategy.
