Call our firm when you are in need of a federal criminal defense team. If you have been taken into custody by national agents or arrested while on property owned by the U.S. government, your charges and proceedings will be conducted in the federal courts.
Unlike state procedures, defendants taken into custody by government agencies will face a whole different set of circumstances. For instance, bail, on the state level, is determined by a schedule (i.e., if you commit THIS crime, you must pay THIS much to get out of jail). The procedures of a federal arrest differ in that there is no bail schedule, and defendants are required to be interviewed by a Pretrial Services Officer in order to determine whether or not they are even eligible for bail.
The Pretrial Services Officer will make an investigation of:
- Employment history and/or status
- Financial situation
- Family relationships
- Position within the community in which they live
Having a federal criminal defense representative to uphold your rights and fight for your innocence can be vital to securing your ability to be released on bail. The government maintains the right to hold, without bail, individuals who pose a flight risk or individuals who are determined to be too dangerous to released back into their communities while awaiting trial. It is common to be detained without the allowance of bail if involved in:
- The sale and distribution of illegal weapons
- Organized crimes
- Gang related activities
- Individuals with extensive criminal histories may also be detained without bail.
A federal criminal defense attorney may be able to help you secure your bail, or help you appeal to the District Court Judge, if your bail has been denied.
The discovery process in government courts is also quite different than that of the state courts. A United States Prosecuting Attorney, for instance, is not required to provide the statements of their witnesses to the federal criminal defense team until after the witnesses have testified before the courts. This means that, without a motion to compel discovery early on in the trial, a U.S. Prosecutor can withhold testimonial evidence until the last minute and present a bombshell disclosure for which the defendant is unprepared. We will counter these kinds of strategies with skill and forcefulness.
