How Does the Prosecutor Prove Fraud?
In order to convict you of fraud, the prosecutor must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you committed the offense. In order to do so, the prosecutor must prove that you intended to deceive another person or entity and that you intended to gain a benefit or avoid a loss by doing so. In most cases, the prosecutor will attempt to prove these elements by presenting evidence of your actions and statements.
Some examples of evidence that the prosecutor may use to prove fraud include:
- Photographic or video evidence
- Witness testimony
- Statements made by the defendant
- Emails or texts
- Phone records
- Surveillance footage
The prosecution will present this evidence to a jury, who will then decide whether or not to convict you of fraud.
