Mail Fraud Crimes In Florida
Mail fraud can be charged whenever allegations of illegal activity involve shipping something via the U.S. Postal Service, Federal Express, UPS or any other shipping service. Allegations often involve shipment of marijuana, prescription pills and other drugs or guns and other weapons. These charges may be secondary to drug charges, weapons charges or other charges, so it is critical that you choose a criminal defense attorney capable of fighting multiple charges.
At The Figueroa Law Firm, P.A. in Orlando, we have more than a decade of experience defending people in Orange County and throughout Florida against state and federal mail fraud charges, as well as other related criminal charges.
Defense Strategies In Mail Fraud Cases
While someone at the post office may investigate a package and discover that it contains illegal items, these charges are often the result of an informant providing a tip to law enforcement. In these cases, our lawyers will investigate the informant’s credibility. Often, the informant has also been charged with a crime and is providing information to get a better deal on his or her sentence. If so, we will bring this to light.
We are also skilled in handling mail fraud cases that are the result of undercover investigations. Wiretap evidence and other evidence may seem strong, but we know how to find weaknesses. Was the accused simply asked to pick up or drop off a package without being told what the package contained? Was there an element of entrapment involved? We will explore numerous defense strategies.
