Experienced Defense Against Federal Criminal Charges In The State Of Maryland
Not all prosecutions are created equal. Federal law enforcement and prosecution tactics are routinely much more aggressive than their State counterparts. A federal investigation/prosecution is one of the most serious situations that an individual can face.
Most crimes occur and are prosecuted on the state level. The federal government criminalizes certain actions if they implicate federal interests. For example, if the crime occurs on federal property, crosses state lines or involves federal interests (i.e. banks), the “feds” can get involved. Generally, if you’re charged with a federal crime as opposed to a state crime, that’s not good; and it typically means that you will face more serious consequences than you would in a state case.
Don’t Make a Federal Case Out of This
People often use the above phrase when they want to tell someone, “don’t make a big deal out of this.” The reason why this is an apt comparison is that a federal case is a very, very big problem. By the time federal charges are brought against an individual, the government has often devoted hundreds of hours investigating their mark and building a case against them.
The federal government has the full resources of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Diplomatic Security Service (DSS), the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) amongst other federal law enforcement agencies, at their disposal. In other words, the government has millions of dollars’ worth of resources available to prosecute any defendant.
The prospect of battling the full weight of the United States Government can be daunting for anyone, including attorneys. Not all criminal defense attorneys have the necessary experience and skill required to stand toe-to-toe with professional U.S. attorneys who prosecute federal crimes.
In defending any federal charges, an experienced federal criminal defense attorney is needed to meticulously scour all the evidence and prepare a vigorous defense.
