In California, fraud crimes may be charged as misdemeanors or felonies, typically depending on the amount of money or value of services that was involved. In addition to facing incarceration in county jail or state prison, a person convicted of fraud may face heavy fines. Victim restitution may also be ordered by the court, to repay victims for their losses.
There are several other factors that make fraud charges particularly serious:
- The government can seize any money or other property that was obtained through fraudulent means.
- Many fraud offenses are automatic felonies in California.
- Certain types of fraud are considered federal crimes, which means a defendant may face prosecution in state court and federal court, including enhanced penalties.
- Fraud may be considered a crime of moral turpitude in California, providing grounds for deportation.
