Types of Federal Criminal Cases
Many federal cases are also white-collar crimes and generally refer to crimes involving business professionals or other individuals who allegedly used deception for financial gain. In most cases, white-collar crime charges are handled in federal courts rather than state courts. However, not all federal criminal cases are white collar, but need to be handled just as effectively by skilled counsel. Our firm handles all types of federal cases, such as:
- Internet pornography
- Child pornography
- Drug trafficking and other drug charges
- Tax fraud
- Mortgage fraud
- Internet fraud
- Wire fraud
- Identity theft
- Securities and healthcare fraud
- Counterfeiting, forgery and currency violations
- Bribery, extortion and blackmail
- Credit card fraud
Consequences Upon Conviction
Individuals arrested or under investigation for federal offenses often face an aggressive prosecution and harsh sentences if convicted. If you are convicted, you may be sentenced to prison time in a federal correctional institution. Many individuals are often sentenced to paying fines or restitution, if stolen or fraudulently obtained funds are at the center of the case. In addition, you will now have a permanent criminal record that may affect your future ability to obtain employment, secure a residence and other impacts.
