Fraudulent anti-aging products Lawyers NYC

The United States Food and Drug Administration, commonly referred to as the FDA, has established a variety of strict guidelines regarding the ways in which certain kinds of commercially sold product are marketed and promoted to the public. One example is the guidelines for marketing “anti-aging” products.

When an individual or business fails to comply with these advertisement regulations, they could be subject to serious legal repercussions. The individual in charge of the advertisement will need to have a competent and experienced attorney to represent them against the charges of anti-aging fraudulence.

How Criminal Prosecution Works in Fraudulent Anti-Aging Cases

At times when a person faces any kind of issue regarding allegations of false advertising for an anti-aging product, they are likely to face a criminal prosecution. Criminal prosecutions in New York are eligible to occur at both the federal and state level. In certain rare cases, people have been prosecuted in both federal and state court for breaking both federal and state regulations.

Criminal prosecutions can be devastating for the people charged with this crime. Convictions come with significant penalties for both the advertiser and the business. If a person is convicted of any activities related to fraudulent anti-aging product sale, they could be subject to large fines and significant time in prison.

State level prosecutions have the potential for the same consequences. The difference between a prosecution at the federal level and a prosecution at the state level is the amount of time that a person convicted of the crime will serve while incarcerated. At the state level, incarcerated people can receive higher amounts of time taken off their sentence for good behavior than they can at the federal level.

Anti-Aging Product Civil Penalties

Criminal prosecution is not the only sanction that an individual might face when charged with any activities regarding fraudulent anti-aging products. Individuals who have been accused of fraudulent anti-aging product-related activities might also be subject to a civil sanction. A civil sanction usually includes some kind of monetary penalty along with an official prohibition from the participation in specified business activities following the trial.

Investigation Regarding Anti-Aging Product Fraud

Although it is not required by the state of New York for law enforcement officials to make their investigations apparent immediately, many people do understand when they are under investigation for fraudulent advertising and business practices. When the investigation becomes obviously known, it’s important for whoever the inquiry targets to seek adequate legal representation.

One of the key defense strategies that an attorney will employ is the attempt at a resolution. Resolving an allegation will prevent the matter from continuing further. In certain cases, resolutions can be negotiated before any criminal prosecutions are initiated. This means that you will never be arrested, booked, or charged. Such resolutions usually involve a civil agreement. Civil agreements are much preferred to the protracted prosecution that you would face without a settlement.

When an individual is the target regarding a marketing fraud investigation, or they are charged with this crime regarding anti-aging products, it’s imperative that they have legal counsel before they speak to law enforcement officials. You have the right to remain silent. You have the right to an attorney, and you have the right to let your attorney speak for you.

Investigators will often promise that they can get you a better deal if you speak to them without an attorney. They’ll also bring up fallacies like, “Innocent people don’t need lawyers.” This is strictly untrue. Law enforcement officials are seeking to prosecute you with as much evidence and as high a charge as possible. They are not your friends. Your attorney is your main form of protection against coercion and loss of your rights. An investigator doesn’t have the ability to “cut a deal,” but they do have the ability to lie in their attempt to make you say something incriminating.

Lawyers on Retainer

If you suspect that you are the target of an anti-aging product fraud investigation, it’s a good idea to have legal representation on retainer. Proactive stances regarding legal representation are most helpful. You should have an attorney prepared before you are charged with or accused of anything.
