One question that might cross your mind as you contemplate possible defense tactics is if you should plead the fifth. Regardless of the criminal charges you face, you have a constitutional right to avoid self-incrimination by remaining silent. You might believe you have to answer every question law enforcement asks, but the only information you must provide is information that identifies who you are, such as your name, date of birth and address.

Wire fraud is a federal crime that consists of using an interstate communications device in the course of pursuing a scheme to defraud a person or entity of any type of item of value. Even though the law refers to the crime as wire fraud, it also includes wireless communications such as cell phones.

3 things you should know about conspiracy charges

Courts might prosecute this offense as a misdemeanor or a felony, but in either case, you should be aware of several factors that can impact you and your defense.
