Understanding Federal Cases
Federal cases differ from state cases in a few important ways. For one, federal arrests are generally made by federal agencies like the FBI, DEA, or ATF, or by local agencies working with a federal agency as part of a joint task force. Federal arrests are made either at the direction of a warrant from a magistrate or an indictment issued by a grand jury. In both cases, the issuing parties will have reviewed significant evidence of your involvement in the crime.
Legal Defenses for Federal Crimes
When it comes to investigating federal crimes, federal agencies do not mess around. It is important to realize that if you have been charged with a federal crime, investigators likely have substantial evidence tying you to the alleged crime. Finding the right legal strategy for your case depends on the nature of the charges and the evidence against you.
