Section: False Statement Federal Agency
Definition: False Statement Federal Agency
1: 18 U.S.C. § 1001 is a broad and often used statute that makes giving false statements to the federal government a crime. Section 1001 covers three broad categories of offenses. First, § 1001 prohibits and penalizes falsifying, concealing, or otherwise covering-up a material fact by any trick, scheme, or device from any federal department or agency and their employees and agents; second, it criminalizes the making of materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statements or representations to any federal department or agency and their employees and agents; and third, § 1001 criminalizes the use of a writing or document containing materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statements before any federal department or agency. To convict under this statute, the government has to prove beyond a reasonable doubt (1) that the defendant made a false statement; (2) that the statement was material; (3) that the defendant acted with specific intent to mislead; and (4) that the matter was within the purview of a federal government agency. A violation of § 1001 is punishable by a fine and imprisonment of up to five years, or both.

In some situations, it may be difficult for the prosecution to pursue or prove a false statement case. This is due to the fact that the intent of the defendant is a key part of the charges. To be convicted of committing some type of false statement, the prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant intentionally made the attempt to or actually falsified statements. If a false statement case goes to court, there is often no recovery of losses for the plaintiff because a judgment is ordered. The judgment can often include jail time, making recovery of losses very difficult. Settling out of court is the most beneficial option for both parties; the plaintiff has a better chance of recovering losses and the accused can avoid serving time in jail or prison.
