The Penalties for Credit Card Fraud

As technology progresses and becomes more sophisticated easy to use, it brings a much-appreciated convenience to our lives. We can use our credit cards electronically to make purchases, and the entire transaction can be completed with only a touch of a button. It also makes it much easier for credit card fraud to occur.

Credit card fraud is a theft crime and also a white collar crime, and it may also be considered a federal offense. At the very minimum, credit card fraud is a Class 1 misdemeanor, if the value stolen amounted to less than $200. Above this limit, then the crime is elevated to a Class 6 felony.

These are the following penalties for credit card fraud:

  • Misdemeanor—if less than $200:
    • 12 months maximum jail time
    • $2, 500 fine
  • Felony—more than $200:
    • Incarceration in state prison, between 1 to 5 years
    • Or, up to 12 months in jail
  • $2, 500 fine

Just because you were arrested, it does not mean automatically mean you are guilty. Remember that the justice system states that every person facing a criminal accusation is innocent until proven guilty. The evidence must be conclusive and compelling enough to show that you played a role in the crime. Our Virginia Beach criminal defense attorney can form a counter argument to the prosecutor claims and challenge any weaknesses in the evidence.
