Federal Criminal Case Issues

Federal criminal cases are notoriously complex and can bring about various issues that may put you at risk. With the help of an experienced federal criminal defense attorney, you can mitigate these potential pitfalls. Here are some of the most common issues we look out for when building our clients’ defenses:

1. Illegally Obtained Evidence

Federal agents and prosecutors have limitations on their investigative tactics to protect defendants’ constitutional rights. However, sometimes these facts are overlooked, and evidence is obtained illegally. If your legal team fails to identify improperly obtained evidence, you could be convicted based on this inadmissible evidence.

2. Conspiracy Allegations

Under federal law, you do not have to commit a criminal act to be convicted of a substantive offense. If the prosecution can prove that you were part of an informal or formal agreement to commit a crime and that one of your alleged co-conspirators has executed a move toward carrying out the crime, this is enough for them to prosecute you.

3. Attempt Allegations

Federal law also permits charges for attempt in cases where there is no evidence of an actual completed offense. In many situations, attempted violations carry the same punishment as successful ones. Anyone being targeted by federal prosecutors must be careful to avoid relying on their defense strategies, which may expose them to accusations of unsuccessful criminal behavior.

4. Multiple Related and Unrelated Charges

Under other statutes, severe penalties may be imposed for acts taken in furtherance of — or in connection with — specific criminal behavior. As such, in federal cases, it’s common for a defendant to face multiple charges for both related and unrelated crimes. In these situations, it’s imperative to work with federal defense lawyers who understand how to counter such moves in court.

5. Co-Conspirator Testimony

The prosecution may obtain testimony from a confidential informant or a co-conspirator, which could hurt your case. It’s up to your legal team to be ready to refute any accusations made by witnesses testifying against you.

6. Sentencing Guidelines

While the Federal Sentencing Guidelines aren’t binding, judges and prosecutors rely on them during sentencing hearings to determine which punishments should be imposed on defendants should they be convicted. Although mitigation of supposed wrongdoing can make plea deals and lower sentences possible for individuals, our experienced attorneys will help you find any alternatives available to reduce Federal Sentencing Guidelines penalties.

Potential Penalties in Federal Criminal Cases

Once you are facing federal charges, the potential penalties can be life-altering, which is why it’s critical to have experienced federal criminal defense lawyers advocating for you.

– Federal Imprisonment – Depending on the severity of your case, you could face a minimum of several years in prison.
– Probation – If incarceration can’t be avoided, probation may offer an alternative penalty.
– Fines – The range of statutory fines varies depending on the crime you’re being accused of, but they’re always significant.
– Restitution, Recoupment, and Other Financial Penalties – Defendants convicted of certain crimes may have to pay restitution or recoupments for their illegal activity.
– Other Statutory Penalties – In some cases, defendants may also face additional statutory penalties, such as Medicare exclusion or the loss of registration.
