False Statements as Crimes

Los Angeles White Collar Crime Lawyer

A false statement is any untrue statement that is either willfully or unknowingly presented as fact, and does not have to include an intention to mislead or misguide others. It therefore does not have to be a lie, as a lie is intentional deception in putting forth a statement one knows to be untrue. One can be unaware of the lack of truth in their statement and still be accused of making a false statement. The term can be applied to activities that can include white collar crimes, discussions with local police officers, and discussions with federal officers or other governmental representatives.

When the false statement is made to a U.S. government agency or representative it is considered a felony crime falling under Section 1001 of Title 18 of the United States Code, and the penalties for such are variable, but can be severe. If you have been accused of making false statements, these are serious charges and you are urged to immediately contact a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney to protect your constitutional rights and your future.
