The Penalties Associated with a Federal Fraud Conviction Are Significant

Many people believe that white collar crimes like fraud are relatively minor issues, with minimal penalties. In truth, a federal fraud conviction can lead to a wide range of damaging consequences, both immediately and in the long-term. The potential penalties and consequences of a conviction include:

sex crime

Prison time

Individuals convicted of federal fraud charges may be sentenced from six months to 30 years in prison. Many factors impact the length of a sentence, including the nature and severity of the crime and your criminal record.

tax crime


The federal court often imposes hefty fines on individuals convicted of fraud. These fines, coupled with court costs and restitution, can leave you in dire financial straits for years to come.



The federal government will aggressively pursue restitution in the vast majority of federal fraud cases. Depending on the amount of money involved in the case, a restitution order can leave you paying for years to come.

immigration crime

Criminal record

A fraud conviction may make it difficult to obtain employment in many industries. The financial services industry takes a specifically harsh view of fraud convictions, making it all but impossible to obtain employment in a bank, insurance company or stock brokerage.

juvenile defense

Loss of licensure

A fraud conviction may endanger a professional license, such as a medical license or Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) Series 6 or Series 7 licensure. Loss of mandatory licensure may mean the end of your professional career.
