Federal Perjury

Experienced Honolulu Criminal Defense Lawyer

At its heart, perjury is a crime of dishonesty. Very simply, it is defined as a providing information you know to be false while under oath in court or any other official proceeding. Within that simple definition, however, there are many different circumstances, many subtle variations that make the crime vulnerable to effective defense.

Here at the Law Office of Victor Bakke, ALC, we have extensive experience in federal court and our time as a former prosecutor gives us a unique perspective on witness testimony and cross examination—two of most common instances where perjury is suspected to have occurred. Contact an effective Honolulu federal crimes lawyer at our firm today to learn more.

What does perjury entail?

There are several different circumstances needed to effectively be charged of perjury. Some of them are required, others only have to be suspected or a possibility for a charge to be made.

Circumstances of perjury include:

  • The accused being under oath (required)
  • The information being material/relevant to the case (required)
  • The information to be spoken or written down (required)
  • Intention to mislead officials
  • Recanted testimony
  • Inconsistencies to the stated information

Often, these circumstances are highly sensitive and can be argued down in court. For instance, recanting testimony can often be evidence of no intention to mislead, but can also point to an attempt to tamper or omit information between different proceedings. This is why it is crucial to obtain competent, incisive defense to navigate these charges. Conviction of perjury in federal court can result up to five years in prison and fines.

We're ready to represent you today.

No one should have to feel like their cooperation in court of law should be punished. Perjury charges are often the result of a number of different "traps" and courtroom maneuvers prosecutors use to challenge facts and foster doubt. At the Law Office of Victor Bakke, ALC, we don't believe that you or a loved one have to suffer for those actions and are ready to fight back against these serious charges.
