In California, fraud most commonly occurs when someone gains an unfair
benefit to the detriment or harm of another person. A conviction for fraud
can include long jail sentences and heavy fines and costs. Many fraud
charges are considered "wobblers." A wobbler can be charged
as a felony or a misdemeanor, depending on the person's past criminal
record and the specific facts of the individual case. Although some fraud
charges are automatically considered felonies, and not subject to being
dropped down to a misdemeanor.
