Financial Fraud Comes in Many Forms

Two recent stories in the news demonstrate that financial crimes can happen to anyone, and can be committed by anyone. Identity theft, credit card fraud, and embezzlement are beginning to rise all over the country as technology and criminals become more sophisticated. I saw that first hand when I prosecuted these types of cases as an Assistant Wayne County Prosecutor. However, those crimes can be complex and difficult to prove. While victims can range from a wealthy heiress to the public assistance programs provided by the State, those accused of such crimes also need good representation, to ensure that the prosecution can prove those crimes beyond a reasonable doubt. In some cases, there is no one that can identify the accused, but rather, the only evidence of identity is an IP address to a computer. In those cases, should that be enough to convict a person of a crime?
