Frequently Asked Questions About Lawrence White-Collar Crimes

What is mail fraud? What is wire fraud?

Federal criminal fraud cases are often charged as mail or wire fraud. The reason is jurisdictional – federal courts only have jurisdiction when there is an interstate nexus. Courts have held that fraud involving the mail or wires (internet, phones) has a sufficient connection to interstate commerce to trigger federal jurisdiction. But the crime at issue is fraud – misrepresentations or material omissions of fact.

Is an administrative warrant the same as a criminal warrant?

An administrative warrant is an order from a judge requiring information pertaining to violations of administrative rules or regulations to be produced to the regulating agency. The function is similar to a criminal warrant, but it is not the same. An administrative warrant requires a lower standard of proof than a criminal warrant.

What is a grand jury?

A grand jury is supposed to be an investigative body—a group of individuals tasked to collect information about suspected criminal activity and decide whether to indict the suspected criminal. Grand juries hear testimony from witnesses and review documents and other tangible evidence. The grand jury can issue subpoenas to collect this information and evidence.

The prosecutor’s role before a grand jury is to act as a legal advisor. However, as grand juries are composed of laymen, prosecutors have significant influence and control over the evidence presented for the grand jury’s consideration.

The proceedings before a grand jury are held in private and usually kept private even after charges are filed.

If you have received a federal grand jury subpoena or been indicted by a federal grand jury, you need qualified criminal defense counsel on your side. Call JHC’s federal criminal defense attorneys today.

What is criminal forfeiture?

Criminal forfeiture laws allow property used to commit a crime or that was purchased with criminal proceeds to be seized and forfeited to the government so that the perpetrators of crimes do not get to keep the financial benefits of their criminal activities.
