Federal Crimes & Offenses

Federal Crimes & Offenses: Jefferson City Criminal Lawyers and Criminal Attorneys

Criminal charges filed in the United States District Courts (federal courts) are some of the most serious criminal offenses which exist. Criminal charges are not filed by local prosecuting attorneys, but by the United States Attorney’s Office. The United States Attorney’s Office utilizes resources unavailable to the local prosecutors including highly trained investigators within federal agencies such as the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives (ATF), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), U.S. Immigration Customs and Enforcement (ICE), and the U.S. Postal Service. These investigative agencies utilize any number of resources in criminal investigations including wiretaps of telephones, confidential informants, and seizures of bank records.  Federal Sentencing Guidelines provide significant punishment involving incarceration. Many crimes which can be filed in State courts can also be filed in federal courts, but the punishments are far in excess of what a person may expect.

 

Relatively few criminal lawyers have experience representing individuals in United States District Court. Even fewer criminal lawyers have jury trial experience in federal court.
