My ccousin has been booked for fradulantely using credit cards of others to book railway tickets.
3 Years back he was arrested & has been charged under section 34B, 420. Currently out on bail.
The fraud amt is around 1.5 lacs.
I wanted to know that if he is found gulity will he be charged only a penalty to pay or will he have to serve any period in jail. Even if he has to serve any term in jail what could be the approximate period?
He does not have a criminal record, it's just that out of stupidity he commited this crime for the first & last time in his life.
Also, if someone knows the recent outcome of any such case. I guess that would be very helpful.

it is up to the trial court to see which sentence is to be provided if the prosecution succeeds in proving his case. No one can make guess. The fact of maikng crime for the first time may be pleaded before trial magistrate but who can guarantee that this is also last time crime. If you admit that this is your first time crime then cuort can punish you accordingly means highest term.riven
