Are federal criminal cases different than state criminal cases? Yes!

Federal criminal investigations and prosecutions are handled much differently than similar criminal cases in state courts.  First of all, the law enforcement agencies that investigate federal crimes are generally well-funded and staffed by experienced agents and investigators.  The federal prosecutors who conduct federal criminal trials and sentencings are also usually very experienced, and have virtually unlimited resources at their disposal.  The judges who preside in federal courts have lifetime appointments and their dockets are not nearly as crowded as those of most state court judges who handle many different types of criminal offenses.

More importantly, federal crimes generally carry stiffer sentences than state crimes, especially in the areas of drug trafficking and conspiracy.  Federal criminal penalties are also more severe in cases involving child pornography and other sexual offenses prosecuted in federal court.  Interestingly, white collar cases (like fraud, embezzlement and corruption) usually do not result in as steep a sentence as one might get if prosecuted for the same offense in state court.  For the most part, however, the mandatory minimum penalties and federal sentencing guidelines usually result in very lengthy sentences for people convicted of federal crimes. That’s one of the main reasons it is so important to retain a lawyer with a record of success in federal court if the case is being prosecuted in federal court.

If you believe that you are under investigation for embezzlement, but charges have not yet been filed, we can help. If you have been officially charged, we’re ready to defend you.
