Fraud in Redmond
Fraud is defined as misrepresenting facts for personal gain, and it's a serious crime in Washington State. Fraud is distorting the truth in order to coerce another person into giving up something of value, like money or property. Common Redmond fraud crimes include:

If convicted of any of these fraud crimes, you could face a prison sentence of up to 30 years and fines totaling $1 million. The Redmond fraud lawyers at the Law Office of Jason S. Newcombe are ready to help you avoid the irreversible damage a conviction could cause.
Your role in a fraud crime will be thoroughly examined by the authorities, and if they have sufficient evidence they will prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law. Prosecutors will want to determine the value of the goods, money, or services that were fraudulently acquired. They will also ascertain whether you have any previous fraud or criminal convictions, which could lead to even more damaging punishments.
Our Redmond fraud attorneys pursue the dismissal or reduction of your charges, but we must look at all of the evidence. Your fraud lawyer will attempt to reduce your punishments when possible, by working with the prosecutor or taking your case all the way to court. A guilty verdict in any fraud case will likely be devastating, so the actions you take right now truly matter.
