Federal crimes are extremely serious and include such offenses as wire fraud, mail fraud, insider trading, securities fraud, tax fraud, firearms violations, controlled substance offenses, bank robberies, counterfeiting, and money laundering. If you have been charged with a federal crime, I am prepared to come to your immediate defense with 31 years of criminal defense experience.
Government enforcement for these offenses is very aggressive as they have unlimited resources to finance the prosecution. It is extremely important to immediately retain private defense counsel to protect your rights before a police investigator takes your statement and it’s too late. Please remember, even if you committed the crime, you are presumed to be innocent under the law and the government must prove all of the elements of the crime beyond a reasonable doubt before you can be convicted. In addition, the government must convince all 12 jurors that you are guilty before you can be found guilty. If even one juror votes not guilty, there is no conviction. If your constitutional rights were violated during the federal investigation, you may also be able to suppress the use of the evidence against you at trial. Without evidence of a crime, the prosecution’s case falls apart and the matter will be dismissed for lack of probable cause.
