Potential Issues in Federal Criminal Cases
Various issues can arise during a federal criminal defense case that requires the expertise of the federal defense lawyers to resolve as quickly and strategically as possible. Here’s a small sampling of those issues:
Illegally-Obtained Evidence: When federal agents and prosecutors violate constitutional rights, any evidence obtained as a result of the violation may be deemed inadmissible.
Conspiracy Allegations: Many federal statutes contain conspiracy provisions, which do not require committing a substantive offense. These allegations can carry substantial fines and long-term imprisonment.
Attempt Allegations: Under federal law, individuals and organizations targetted for federal prosecution can also face charges for attempt even without evidence of a completed criminal offense.
Multiple Related and Unrelated Charges: In federal cases, defendants can face multiple charges for both related and unrelated crimes.
Confidential Informant or “Co-Conspirator” Testimony: Risk of another party who has a vested interest in the case testifying against you.
Sentencing Guidelines: The potential sentences in most federal criminal cases are outlined in the Federal Sentencing Guidelines (the Guidelines).
