The Federal Criminal Defense Attorneys of Newton Barth Know the Federal Court System
Being arrested and charged with any criminal offense is a serious matter, one which can change the accused’s life forever. However, charges at the federal level can often bring the distinct possibility of especially aggressive prosecution and what may often be even harsher minimum penalties than state-level cases. In addition, many federal cases receive significant media attention and this higher profile can mean not only more aggressive prosecution but also less willingness on the part of prosecutors to negotiate a plea agreement.
Not only do federal charges often bring into the equation Federal Sentencing guidelines and often stiffer penalties, but they also are often handled by federal prosecutors who deal with a small, focused caseload, allowing them to dedicate greater time and resources to building a case against the accused.
What is a federal crime?
A crime is federal when it specifically violates United States federal laws, or when an individual carries out criminal activity over multiple states, including commercial fraud, wire fraud, and sex or drug trafficking. Federal offenses are tried in federal courts and are investigated and prosecuted by government agencies such as the U.S. Attorney’s Office or the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
