Fraud Criminal Defense Attorney in Salt Lake City and Utah

Fraud Defense Attorney in Salt Lake City, Murray, West Valley, and SandyIn Salt Lake City and throughout Utah, a criminal fraud charge can mean a number of things. Technically, fraud refers to the intentional misleading of a person with the intent of cheating them out of money or property. In actuality, a fraud charge is often something that prosecutors use when they don’t know what other charge to levy. In other cases, a business deal gone sour might result in fraud charges because the offended party doesn’t know how else to get what they deem to be restitution.
