Fraud can be difficult to prosecute, since prosecutors must first establish an intent on the part of the accused to defraud others, as well as their participation in certain kinds of acts involving fraud itself. As a result, prosecutors must establish additional facts beyond the mere fact someone overbilled Medicaid, turned in an inaccurate insurance claim, or wrote a series of bad checks.
The difference between inadvertence and intentional wrongdoing may be slight indeed.
