Wire fraud charges is a federal crime that is prosecuted by the Department
of Justice rather than state prosecutors. If you are accused of defrauding
or attempting to defraud another individual over state lines using telecommunications

Elements of Wire Fraud
In order to be convicted of wire fraud, your prosecutors must be able to
prove the following three elements:
- You had a scheme to commit fraud
- You used wire, radio, television, or internet communication to perpetrate
- You specifically intended to commit fraud with your scheme
This means there are a few legal defenses, most frequently having to do
with intent and demonstrating that you did not intend to commit fraud.
