Wire fraud charges filed against defamed ultramarathon runner

A 46-year-old man who reportedly moved from another state to Florida last year was recently arrested. His arrest arose from an investigation into alleged white-collar crimes committed from 2014 through 2018. The man was charged with multiple felonies, including theft and wire fraud.

Investigators allege the man committed multiple white-collar crimes during his employment as the general manager of a business in another state. Reportedly, his position authorized him to purchase services and goods for the company. He was also responsible for maintaining customer relations, and traveled for business frequently. Allegedly, it was during this time that the defendant submitted false expense reports for reimbursement, and court documents show he even resubmitted already paid expenses after whiting out and changing details and dates.

According to court documents, the fraudulent claims total almost $49,000 for 148 phony business expenses. Reportedly, this man was a decorated ultramarathon runner in Utah during from 2013 to 2016. However, he was later stripped of all his awards after he was apparently caught cheating.

Anyone in Florida who is in a similar position of facing wire fraud charges will likely benefit by retaining the services of an experienced criminal defense attorney. Having legal counsel from the start can protect a defendant's legal rights throughout every stage of the criminal proceedings. No conviction can be obtained until, and only if,  the prosecution can prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Charges are often reduced or even dropped in some cases. A lawyer will fight to achieve the best possible outcome for his or her client.
