Defense Attorney for Federal Crimes Charges
Federal crimes have special importance in criminal law. There may be different rules of evidence as compared to State law, the penalties can differ and often they are more significant. If you are being investigated for or have been charged with a federal crime, it is important to work with an attorney with specific experience and success in defending clients against federal charges.
Federal crimes can include kidnapping, terrorism, bank robbery, tax evasion, and other crimes. In each case, regardless of where the crime occurred, it will be investigated by federal law enforcement agencies and prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s office.
The Seriousness of the Case
One of the distinctive elements of federal crimes is the penalties involved if convicted. Sentencing in federal cases may be more severe and, depending on the type of charge, federal courts may be less likely to show leniency than state courts. The prosecution has vast resources to investigate alleged federal crimes, and may enlist the assistance of agencies such as the FBI, DEA, the CIA or Homeland Security. Federal crimes must be taken very seriously. If you have been charged or are even in process of being investigated, it is important that you work with an attorney who is well-versed in federal criminal defense.
