Information on Federal Crime Charges and Penalties
Most common crimes are prosecuted by the state in which the criminal lives, or in which the crimes was committed. However, certain crimes filed in federal court, a completely different court system with professional prosecutors that have made the grade and serve in this venue. Generally, many white collar crimes are federal crimes, because they may involve financial crimes that cross state lines and violate federal laws. If you have been accused of a white collar crime, it is essential that you hire an experienced and aggressive Colorado criminal defense attorney from our firm to represent you and defend you in federal court.
When you are accused of a federal crime, it is generally because the federal government or law enforcement officials have been investigating you and have superseded the state government and law enforcement on your case. The federal law enforcement officials may have been investigating you and may have even set up surveillance on your home, office, or those of your friends and family members. Even if you believe that you are not under investigation, but someone close to you, a friend, family, or business associate is, it is essential that you hire legal representation.
Federal crimes are harshly punished under the federal sentencing guidelines, which are much more severe than state sentencing guidelines. If you stand accused, you need a defense lawyer who will know how to argue your case and negotiate with federal prosecutors to possibly reduce your charges or sentence, or even have charges dropped altogether.
