Federal Criminal Defense Attorney
Facing federal charges differs than criminal charges on the state level. A federal crime is one that is considered to be illegal by federal laws. Typically, these are outlined in Title 18 of the United States Code; however, there are certain acts and pieces of legislation that have been created to outlaw different crimes (such as Title 26, which outlaws to possess certain weapons).
There are many different crimes that are outlawed under federal law; however, one thing that remains the same is the severity of the penalties that are associated with these crimes. One thing to keep in mind is that these cases will not be investigated by local authorities. Instead, you will be facing a case that was established and researched by federal associations, such as the FBI. They could have weeks or even months of a head start meaning that by the time that you realize you are being charged, they could have almost an entirely waterproof case.
