Like identity theft, credit card fraud is an area of criminal conduct that is being aggressively pursued by Maryland prosecutors. In Federal court, sentencing is determined, in part, by the aggregate amount of the fraud. These numbers can pile up quickly, and lead to long sentences.
It is absolutely critical that you hire an attorney as soon as you are aware that you are being investigated. Like most areas of criminal law, suspects can make costly mistakes early on if they are not represented by a knowledgeable attorney.
