What is fraud?

Some crimes may have consequences under both federal and state laws and include allegations over activities that take place in an office or computer. Federal fraud charges can involve a wide range of business and personal practices.

Generally, fraud is an intentional and deceptive act that is intended to give the alleged perpetrator unlawful gain or deny rights to the victim. It involves the false representation of facts by intentionally withholding important information or giving false statements. The purpose is to gain something that was unavailable before committing the fraudulent act.

GPS warrants have lower requirements

Global position system technology provides directions to motorists but can also impact the rights of crime suspects and raise constitutional issues. The Wisconsin State Supreme Court recently issued a decision that can impact the rights of suspects charged with drug charges and other offenses by ruling that warrants for GPS tracking do not have to meet the legal requirements for timely execution that govern other warrants.

What is embezzlement?

People in Sheboygan and other parts of Northeastern Wisconsin may have heard the term embezzlement in the context of stories about major corporate or political scandals.

Embezzlement is actually a type of theft. Whereas some people might think of a thief as someone who shoplifts or breaks in to parked cars or even just takes an opportunity to rummage through one's personal belongings, someone accused of embezzlement usually enjoys the benefit of some sort of trust.
