Frequently asked questions.

What sentence could I face for investment fraud?

Cartwright King will do everything we can to help you avoid prosecution, giving you sound, sensible legal advice and sure guidance throughout legal proceedings.

Courts take cases of fraud very seriously – the maximum sentence for conspiracy to defraud is 10 years after trial. Sentencing will depend upon the individual circumstances of your case. Cartwright King will work tirelessly to ensure that we secure the best result/sentence for you.

Often, we secure sentences that are much lower than would ordinarily be expected. Get in touch with our specialist solicitors today for a run through of the factors that a court will consider when passing sentence and what can be done to mitigate it to reduce your sentence.

Can I get a reduced sentence if I plead guilty?

A guilty plea can reduce your sentence for investment fraud by up to a third. The length by which a sentence is reduced depends on how soon you enter a guilty plea. The later you plead guilty as your case progresses, the smaller the sentence reduction.

Will I get a criminal record if convicted of investment fraud?

Yes. Details of your conviction will be logged with either the DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) – formerly known as the CRB (Criminal Record Bureau), or the Police National Computer (PNC), or both. This information will be accessible by current or future employers.
