2 tips to fine-tune a defendant's criminal defense

Perhaps police pulled you over and found an unmarked bottle of pills in your pocket while you were crossing state lines. Perhaps an officer thought you stole something from federal property, but the item was yours and you were carrying it on your person when stepped onto the property. Or, maybe a Sheriff's Deputy caught you in the act of mailing some crystal meth to another state. No matter what the circumstance surrounding your arrest and federal crime allegations were, in the United States, you will remain innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. Until then, you have every right to defend yourself against your charges.

Fraud in the general sense refers to a dishonest action by someone who manipulates the truth, omits or misrepresents important information for the purposes of financial gain.
