What are the penalties for fraud charges?
Penalties for fraud charges depend on a number of factors, but the primary one is the amount of money involved in the defendant’s fraudulent action:
- For fraudulent activities under $5,000.00, the maximum penalty is six months for a summary conviction or two years for indictment. Depending on the nature of the offence, the court can order the defendant to serve house arrest instead of incarceration.
- For fraudulent activities over $5,000.00, you can face up to 14 years in jail. If the amount exceeds $1 million, the minimum term of imprisonment is two years.
