Federal Crime Defense Attorney in Clearwater

Defending Federal Criminal Charges

Any criminal accusation should be taken very seriously. When the situation involves a federal criminal charge, you will need the help of a Clearwater criminal defense lawyer with a history of successfully defending federal criminal charges. Federal criminal law is different than those laws enforced at the state level, as statutes and punishments have been determined by the United States Congress as crimes against the country. The federal court system has different rules and procedures and mounting a strong defense will require an experienced legal team.

Federal law is enforced by various law enforcement agencies such as the FBI, ATF, DEA and other agencies, and it involves a different, yet sometimes overlapping, set of laws and punishments.

Some of the more common examples of federal crime include:

  • Fraud, healthcare fraud and mail/wire fraud
  • Bank robbery
  • Federal drug crimes
  • Money laundering
  • Counterfeiting
  • Child pornography
  • Computer crimes
  • Conspiracy
  • Immigration law violations
  • Battery & Assault of a federal officer

Federal cases involve sentencing covered in individual criminal statues and as defined in the United States Sentencing Guidelines, thus giving judges less discretion in determining appropriate sentences. Parole is not an option after a federal crime conviction. Prosecutors have unlimited government resources to work with, and it is critical that you have a high quality, experienced criminal defense lawyer fighting for your case.
