Illinois is one of the few states to have adopted mail and wire fraud statutes and included them as provisions in their state criminal code. The language of the statutes mirrors the federal mail and wire fraud statutes, and contains the exact same elements. This gives prosecutors (federal and state) added ammunition in negotiating with a defendant pre-trial, since the threat of additional state charges on top of federal charges brings the prospect of additional prison time and costs.
