MN Criminal Defense Attorney Can Help with Wire Fraud Cases

December 02, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ - Birrell Law Firm, based in Minneapolis, MN, has announced that they can provide a criminal defense lawyer who can help people in Minnesota who have been charged with wire fraud. It should be noted that federal prosecutors are aggressive in prosecuting fraud cases. Oftentimes, they will charge a person with both mail and wire fraud. For these cases, the prosecution will need to prove that the person had specific intent to defraud. Since these are often complicated cases, having a skilled and experienced MN wire fraud attorney can make a lot of difference.

Ian Birrell, a partner at the law firm, says, “It is important to note that wire fraud is a federal crime that carries a sentence of not more than 20 years’ imprisonment and fines of up to $250,000 for individuals and $500,000 for organizations. Having the skilled dedicated wire fraud attorneys from Birrell Criminal Defense, fighting wire or mail fraud charges on your behalf can make a difference. These are complicated fact intensive matters that need to be handled carefully. Please do not hesitate to contact us to speak with a lawyer about your situation in a private setting to see how we can help you.”

The Birrell Criminal Defense attorneys also want people to realize that it is not necessary for the prosecution to show that a person has personally sent a fraudulent communication or actually defrauded someone. It is enough for them to prove that there was an intent to defraud or the person acted with knowledge of fraudulent communications being sent.

There are a number of typical examples of wire fraud. These include Ponzi schemes, stealing money or property by using a scheme or artifice, pyramid schemes, money laundering, check kiting schemes, tax evasion, Internet fraud, and embezzlement.

Check kiting takes advantage of the float to use non-existent funds in a bank or checking account. Internet fraud is done with the use of websites, email, chat rooms, and message boards. Embezzlement is the unlawful taking of property of somebody else by the one to whom it was entrusted.

Judge: No slander in Alec Baldwin's comments on parking spat

May 25, 2020

NEW YORK — Alec Baldwin didn't slander a man in interviews about a parking dispute that turned physical, a judge has ruled as dueling lawsuits between the actor and the other driver continue. Baldwin's remarks — including claims that Wojciech Cieszkowski's driving was “really fast,” “really aggressive” and made the actor think his wife and son were about to be run over — were "hyperbole" and "rhetorical illustrations," Manhattan judge David B. Cohen wrote Thursday. “They are words of frustration with someone's driving,” not accusations that amount to slander, Cohen wrote. He tossed out Cieszkowski's slander claim, but his assault...

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

May 25, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

May 25, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

ABC says interview with Epstein accuser wasn't ready to air

May 25, 2020

NEW YORK — ABC News faced questions Tuesday about its reluctance to air a sensitive story of alleged sexual misconduct after a leaked video emerged of reporter Amy Robach complaining about how her bosses handled an interview with a Jeffrey Epstein accuser. The conservative web site Project Veritas released video of Robach venting that "every day I get more and more pissed" that her 2015 interview with Virginia Giuffre never made the air. Robach made her remarks late in August while sitting in a Times Square studio with a microphone but not on the air. ABC said Tuesday that the...
