How Are Federal Crimes Investigated & Prosecuted?
Charges in federal court often carry harsher penalties and are investigated by federal agencies such as the FBI, IRS, or DEA. In general, federal crimes occur across state lines and involve multiple agencies. The investigation is generally extremely in-depth, and the accused often know that they are the subject of an investigation. When federal cases go to trial, they are prosecuted by the United States Attorneys instead of the state prosecutors. If you are convicted at trial or decide to accept a plea, you will be sentenced under the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines by a U.S. District Court judge.
Examples of federal crimes we defend include:
Federal Probation & Supervised Release Violations
If you are convicted of a federal crime, you may be able to negotiate for probation or supervised release. Supervised release or federal probation involves strict monitoring of the convicted person for three to five years, depending on the type of crime committed. Due to the strictness of federal probation and supervised release, violations are common and can result in even more penalties. If you've committed a federal probation violation, you may feel like any progress you've made after leaving prison has been lost. However, with our team of Midland federal defense attorneys, you will have an advocate on your side who can work with the court and your probation officer to minimize any additional penalties.
