Federal Crimes Carry Severe Penalties

If you are being investigated for a federal crime or have been charged with a federal crime, the situation is potentially very serious. Federal crimes are taken very seriously by law enforcement and are prosecuted aggressively by federal government. Federal crimes usually carry penalties much more severe than their criminal counterparts under California law, and can include lengthy sentences in federal prison. The federal court system is completely different than the state court system, and federal prosecutors often have more resources at their disposal and are much less inclined to offer plea bargains.

If you are contacted by federal law enforcement, do not answer any questions or agree to any meetings without contacting a Fresno federal crime defense lawyer.

Many Offenses Are Charged As Federal Crimes

Serious crimes that are usually charged as federal crimes include the following:

  • Bank Robbery
  • Bank fraud
  • Mortgage fraud
  • Insurance fraud
  • Drug crimes, including importation of drugs
  • Kidnapping
  • Crimes committed on federal property
  • Crimes involving commerce that cross state lines
  • Mail fraud
  • Child Pornography

When fraud is involved with financial institutions, the federal government usually gets involved. This can be a frightening experience for the accused, and if you are under investigation and have not yet been arrested, you can expect an arrest will shortly occur. In such cases it is absolutely vital that you do not answer questions from the FBI or other investigatory unit without first getting legal representation from a defense lawyer from the Law Office of Michael J. Aed. Your rights must be relentlessly protected, and your defense should begin at once, whether you are under investigation or have just been arrested.
