Federal crimes are some of the most serious crimes you may be charged with. Involving more severe offenses than other charges, you can expect the investigation of these crimes by the prosecution to be extensive and very thorough. Many times these crimes can involve investigation by federal authorities, such as the FBI and other federal agencies. This results in sentencing guidelines that will require much harsher penalties than a state or local charge. When facing this type of charge, consult with a Miami Criminal Defense Attorney to assist you with a strong defense against any pending action against you. By retaining the services of The Grieco Law Center, our firm can begin an effective investigation into the facts surrounding any criminal charge you may be facing.
If you find yourself charged with a federal offense or feel that you may be under investigation by the federal authorities, you need to contact an experienced criminal lawyer immediately. In a nutshell, there are two ways in which you can be charged with a federal offense. First, the more common charges stem from a violation of federal law. These offenses could included, but are not limited to: Narcotics Trafficking, Child Pornography and/or Internet crimes, White Collar crimes, Immigration violations (such as illegal re-entry after deportation), Firearms offenses, Terrorism offenses, Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) offenses and/or Conspiracy charges, and Gang-Related offenses. The second and less common way that you can be charged with a federal offense is by committing a crime on federal property. This could include, but is not limited to: airports and/or airplanes, Federal government buildings and Federal/National parks. The resources that are spent investigating Federal offenses are often much greater than those spent on State offenses. Federal investigations are conducted by Federal agencies such as the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), the United States Postal Inspection Service (USPIS), the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). It is important to note that Federal prosecutions differ greatly from State prosecutions. They typically move much faster and the defense is provided less discovery. Unlike State court, depositions are not taken in Federal court. In addition, the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure make obtaining a pretrial bond much more difficult than in the State court system. For all of these reasons, if you find yourself facing a federal charge, you will need the immediate assistance of an experienced criminal trial attorney. Some of the common federal crimes we represent our clients for include the following:
- Wire Fraud
- Mail Fraud
- Health Care Fraud
- Mortgage Fraud
- Credit Card Fraud
- Drug Offenses
- Weapons Offenses
