My husband had a massive drug addiction which lead him to steal from his employer. He was making fake Purchase orders, collecting the copper wire and scrapping for Money purely to fund his drug addiction. FBI came to our home. They informed us it was wire fraud since the headquarters of the company was in a different state from the vendors. Looking at roughly $850,000 loss of the company fake POs he received about $240,000 from the scrap yard. he is being cooperative and has to go to federal court for the majestry at the end of the month to find out the specific charges. I’m terrified and we have no idea what to expect. He has never been in trouble before.
It's not possible to answer that question in this limited response, but the most important order of business for your husband is his retaining an experienced federal criminal defense attorney (not a criminal defense or other type of attorney who takes "a few" federal criminal cases). – Joshua Sabert Lowther, Esq., Atlanta, GA.
I am not going to score him (I know nothing about him and so my calculations would be pointless) and so you need to talk to his lawyer.
If he does not have and cannot afford private counsel then he will be appointed counsel immediately in federal court.
Wishing your husband luck and hoping that I have been helpful in answering your question.
First, second and third: No attorney-client relationship exists by virtue of any Q&A with Michael A. Haber, Esq. on Avvo. Fourth: Anything that you post on Avvo (or on similar sites) or on any social media is by its nature public. It is essentially an admission / confession and can be introduced into evidence as a statement against your interest in a subsequent legal proceeding. Once posted you lose any reasonable expectation of privacy, so, as this is an open forum (with no privilege attached), please be extra careful when considering what to post online (forewarned is forearmed.)
He should and you should stop making admissions on a public forum in case the government is monitoring it. You seem much more concerned than he.
I suggest he enter a drug program immediately
