Penalties for Bank Fraud in California

In most cases, bank fraud is a federal crime which means extremely harsh penalties when compared to criminal offenses prosecuted at the state level. If convicted of bank fraud, you may face fines of up to $1,000,000 and prison time of as much as 30 years, depending on the details of your case.

While these penalties may seem severe, individuals who are convicted also face other issues including ruin of their careers and reputations. Having a criminal record severely limits various aspects of your life, including employment opportunities, securing a student or bank loan, and more.

Client Reviews
I moved to another state and missed court. They issued a warrant. I called the Justice Firm and spoke to Joe Virgilio and he was very helpful. The they were able to get the warrant removed and fixed it so I got probation and could go back to work. Neal R.
My mom called the Justice Firm. I had a public defender who was pushing me to take a bad deal. My new attorney Mr Browning was able to get my case dismissed. They also gave me a number for a bondsman who gave a great price so I could get out and get back to work. Carlos G.
My son had the lawyers at the Justice Firm represent him. They were really good. Mr. Hunt always calls me back to answer my questions and let me know what is going on. We have referred several people to them over he last few years and they all thank me for it. They work with the district attorneys to get good results. Rick Q.
