MN Criminal Defense Attorney Can Help with Wire Fraud Cases

December 02, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ - Birrell Law Firm, based in Minneapolis, MN, has announced that they can provide a criminal defense lawyer who can help people in Minnesota who have been charged with wire fraud. It should be noted that federal prosecutors are aggressive in prosecuting fraud cases. Oftentimes, they will charge a person with both mail and wire fraud. For these cases, the prosecution will need to prove that the person had specific intent to defraud. Since these are often complicated cases, having a skilled and experienced MN wire fraud attorney can make a lot of difference.

Ian Birrell, a partner at the law firm, says, “It is important to note that wire fraud is a federal crime that carries a sentence of not more than 20 years’ imprisonment and fines of up to $250,000 for individuals and $500,000 for organizations. Having the skilled dedicated wire fraud attorneys from Birrell Criminal Defense, fighting wire or mail fraud charges on your behalf can make a difference. These are complicated fact intensive matters that need to be handled carefully. Please do not hesitate to contact us to speak with a lawyer about your situation in a private setting to see how we can help you.”

The Birrell Criminal Defense attorneys also want people to realize that it is not necessary for the prosecution to show that a person has personally sent a fraudulent communication or actually defrauded someone. It is enough for them to prove that there was an intent to defraud or the person acted with knowledge of fraudulent communications being sent.

There are a number of typical examples of wire fraud. These include Ponzi schemes, stealing money or property by using a scheme or artifice, pyramid schemes, money laundering, check kiting schemes, tax evasion, Internet fraud, and embezzlement.

Money laundering is the process of hiding the origins of money that was obtained illegally to make it seem like it had been lawfully earned. Check kiting takes advantage of the float to use non-existent funds in a bank or checking account. Internet fraud is done with the use of websites, email, chat rooms, and message boards. Embezzlement is the unlawful taking of property of somebody else by the one to whom it was entrusted.

Mexico farm town prepares funerals after 9 Americans slain

Dec 11, 2019

LA MORA, Mexico — Under a strong security presence, this remote farming community prepared to hold the first funerals Thursday for some of the nine American women and children killed by drug cartel gunmen. Dozens of high-riding pickups and SUVS, many with U.S. license plates from as far away as North Dakota, bumped across dirt and rock roads over desert, arid grasslands and pine-covered mountains Wednesday as night fell on this community of about 300 people. Many of the residents are dual U.S. and Mexican citizens who consider themselves Mormon but are not affiliated with The Church of Jesus Christ...

Wisconsin Senate to vote on firing agriculture secretary

Dec 11, 2019

MADISON, Wis. — Wisconsin's Republican-controlled Senate prepared Tuesday to fire the state agriculture secretary appointed by Democratic Gov. Tony Evers, the latest in a series of skirmishes between the governor and the GOP that comes as Wisconsin is losing dairy farmers at a record pace. Republicans and Evers have been fighting since before Evers even took office. Republicans convened a lame-duck session to pass laws weakening Evers' power in December. This summer, Evers used his expansive veto to reshape the GOP-passed state budget, resulting in attempts in court and through a constitutional amendment to weaken his veto authority. And on...

Try something new with uncommonly delicious (and ugly) fruit

Dec 11, 2019

As I savor one of my just-picked American persimmons (Diospyros virginiana), I'm reminded how this fruit — and a few other delectable fruits — would never sell. Why not? Because they're ugly! Although the persimmons hung from the branches as handsome, plump, orange orbs up to a few weeks ago, by now they have shriveled and their skins are darkening to brown and black. The texture and flavor have likewise changed. They once were like dried apricots that have been plumped up in water and then dipped in honey with a dash of spice. Now, they've become mushier, with some...

LAGOS, Nigeria — Nigerian firefighters were battling two fires that broke out almost simultaneously Tuesday at a busy market in central Lagos, the country's largest city and commercial center. Balogun Market, where the fires erupted, is one of Nigeria's largest textile markets.

Thick black smoke and flames were shooting up from five-story buildings surrounding...

Millennial Money: Secrets of a Black Friday Shopper

Dec 11, 2019

My husband and I have a Thanksgiving routine. Before the family arrives or the turkey is carved, we gather in the living room. As Christmas music plays in the background, he turns on his laptop, and I mine. That's when the deal hunt begins. Some people cringe at the thought of shopping on Thanksgiving or Black Friday, but I revel in it. Maybe it's because I love a good bargain, or because I write about how to save money. Whatever the reason, I know a lot about Black Friday. And I'd like to share some secrets with you. SHOPPING EARLY...
