What are the Penalties for Fraud in Oregon?

The penalties for fraud convictions in Oregon can be very severe, and they differ depending on the type and degree of fraud involved. Penalties may include:

  • Fines: Convicted individuals or businesses may be ordered to pay fines ranging from thousands to millions of dollars, depending on the severity of the fraud.
  • Restitution: Courts may require the defendant to compensate the victim for any financial losses from the fraud.
  • Probation: Some individuals convicted of fraud may be sentenced to probation, during which they must comply with specific conditions, such as regular check-ins with a probation officer.
  • Imprisonment: Fraud convictions can lead to substantial prison sentences, with some cases resulting in several years of incarceration.
  • Criminal Records: A fraud conviction can lead to a permanent criminal record, making it challenging to secure employment or housing in the future.

Defenses Against Fraud Charges

Some common defenses against fraud charges may include:

  • Lack of Intent: Proving that you did not have the intent to commit fraud can be a valid defense. In some cases, mistakes or misunderstandings may be mistaken for fraudulent activity.
  • Mistaken Identity: If there is reasonable doubt about your involvement in the fraudulent activity, we can challenge the prosecution's evidence and argue that you were not the person responsible.
  • Insufficient Evidence: Our team can examine the evidence against you to identify weaknesses or inconsistencies that may cast doubt on your guilt.
  • Illegal Search and Seizure: If law enforcement violated your Fourth Amendment rights during the investigation, we can seek to have evidence obtained illegally excluded from your case.
