Why Legal Representation is Needed
A conviction for an offence involving dishonesty can be a serious handicap in the job market. You should not face prosecution for an offence of this type without legal representation.
Fraud is an imprisonable offence and the more serious cases proceed to the Crown Court.
There may be related a Proceeds of Crime Application upon conviction seeking the recovery of any money / property stolen, together with any perceived financial benefit you may have had from commission of the offence. The Crown may seek to argue that you have a criminal lifestyle and / or hidden assets.
If the Crown are successful in obtaining a Proceed of Crime order this will be for a specified sum which you will be ordered to repay within a specified time period.
This is irrespective of whether you have been sentenced to a term of imprisonment for the offence(s). If you fail to repay the sum ordered then you will serve a term of imprisonment in default. Serving that term does not wipe out the debt. It remains payable.
Defending An Allegation of Fraud / False Accounting.
Successfully defending an allegation of fraud often involves:-
- Detailed expert analysis of documentary evidence and exhibits
- Expert cross examination of the alleged victim and any other prosecution witnesses
- Cross examining police officers
- The instruction of expert forensic accountants
- The instructions of handwriting experts
- The instruction of forensic experts in fingerprinting
- The use of specialist computer analysts, who can counter any expert evidence relied upon to prosecute you
