Guarding Against A Conviction With Serious Penalties
The charge of fraud schemes is also a charge that falls under the umbrella of “theft,” though there is a separate statute for it. This charge is filed as a Class 2 felony, and has a jail term of four to 10 years with probation eligibility for a first offense, six to 18.5 years with one historical prior and 14 to 28 years with two historical priors.
To commit the crime of fraudulent schemes and artifices, a person, pursuant to a scheme or artifice to defraud, knowingly obtains any benefit by means of false or fraudulent pretenses, representations, or promises or material omissions.
