Embezzlement
Obtaining Property by False Pretenses
Attorney Reed N. Noble has successfully handled
cases involving obtaining property by false pretenses
since 1982.

§ 14-100. Obtaining property by false pretenses.

(a) If any person shall knowingly and designedly by
means of any kind of false pretense whatsoever, whether
the false pretense is of a past or subsisting fact or of a
future fulfillment or event, obtain or attempt to obtain from
any person within this State any money, goods, property,
services, chose in action, or other thing of value with
intent to cheat or defraud any person of such money,
goods, property, services, chose in action or other thing
of value, such person shall be guilty of a felony: Provided,
that if, on the trial of anyone indicted for such crime, it
shall be proved that he obtained the property in such
manner as to amount to larceny or embezzlement, the
jury shall have submitted to them such other felony
proved; and no person tried for such felony shall be liable
to be afterwards prosecuted for larceny or
embezzlement upon the same facts: Provided, further,
that it shall be sufficient in any indictment for obtaining or
attempting to obtain any such money, goods, property,
services, chose in action, or other thing of value by false
pretenses to allege that the party accused did the act
with intent to defraud, without alleging an intent to
defraud any particular person, and without alleging any
ownership of the money, goods, property, services,
chose in action or other thing of value; and upon the trial
of any such indictment, it shall not be necessary to prove
either an intent to defraud any particular person or that
the person to whom the false pretense was made was
the person defrauded, but it shall be sufficient to allege
and prove that the party accused made the false
pretense charged with an intent to defraud. If the value of
the money, goods, property, services, chose in action, or
other thing of value is one hundred thousand dollars
($100,000) or more, a violation of this section is a Class
C felony. If the value of the money, goods, property,
services, chose in action, or other thing of value is less
than one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000), a
violation of this section is a Class H felony.

(b) Evidence of nonfulfillment of a contract obligation
standing alone shall not establish the essential element
of intent to defraud.

(c) For purposes of this section, "person" means person,
association, consortium, corporation, body politic,
partnership, or other group, entity, or organization.
