Hamilton Fraud Defence Lawyers

Stealing from an employer or the government is a crime of moral turpitude, which means the resulting penalties upon conviction are greater than others types of crimes. Often, fraudulent acts are motivated by drug, alcohol or gambling addiction. Other times, fraud offences result from misunderstandings, and the people involved may not have known that their actions were contributing to a crime.
