Access device fraud charges, whether in the Eastern District of Virginia, Southern District of Texas, the Arkansas Federal Courts, or any other Federal Court, can result in a felony conviction. The charges may carry up to 10 years in a Federal prison and a fine of up to $250,000.00. The main statute utilized for this type of prosecution is 18 U.S.C. Sec. 1029.
These charges are commonly brought when the government alleges that a person knowingly transfer, possess, or use, without lawful authority the credit card or means of identification (many times computer access fraud charges are filed in conjunction with identity theft charges). The means of identification may include social security numbers and other identifiable information.
