Wide Net of Charges
In some cases, if a District Attorney cannot make other types of criminal charges stick in your situation, they may charge you with mail fraud or wire fraud. These charges are seen as a catch-all net and are frequently easy to prove, thus allowing the District Attorney to charge you with something, rather than nothing.
There are many other types of cases which may include wire or mail fraud charges. Drug trafficking other drug offenses or securities crimes are types of cases where the District Attorney may add fraud charges onto the drug charges in order to bolster their case and the potential penalties.
