Most criminal charges are either prosecuted under state law or federal law, depending on the nature of the offense. Crimes which are investigated by federal agencies often carry longer sentences, such as drug or weapon trafficking, terrorist acts, and certain violent crimes. At The Law Office of Brian C. Andritch, our Fresno federal criminal defense lawyer is experienced in handling all areas of federal crimes.
The agencies which investigate federal offenses include:
- FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation)
- ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives)
- DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency)
Penalties for Federal Crime Convictions
Each federal crime carries its own penalties, especially if there are special circumstances involved. However, there are Federal Sentencing Guidelines which offer a guide for judges to punish offenses of this nature. The penalties for federal crimes may include imprisonment, significant fines, and a permanent criminal record. In most cases, the consequences of a federal crime conviction are much more severe than a state conviction.
Our firm represents clients who have been accused of the following crimes:
- Internet crimes
- Sexual offenses
- Public corruption
- Drug trafficking
- Money laundering
- White collar crimes
- Violent crimes
- Gun/weapon crimes
