Utah Check Fraud Attorneys
Check fraud charges often come alongside other white collar crime charges such as embezzlement or identity theft. If you have reason to believe that you are under investigation or may be arrested on check fraud charges, consult with a knowledgeable defense attorney; the sooner, the better.
If you did write fraudulent checks, mitigating circumstances may be used to your advantage in your defense, including if:
- Someone gave you permission to write checks signed with their signature.
- You exercised poor judgment because of a mental health disorder or addiction such as gambling addiction or drug addiction.
Or you may be convinced that you are innocent — and that the accusations that you took part in check fraud are a result of someone else pointing fingers to avoid being caught.
