Federal Criminal Charges
Many people are under the mistaken impression that the Federal Courts only prosecute crimes such as Drug violations, Bank Robbery, Fraud, and Tax Evasion. The truth is that almost any crime that can be prosecuted by state authorities can also be prosecuted by the Federal Authorities if they chose to take over or adopt the case. Increasingly Federal Authorities are doing just that. They are taking over cases from state authorities in order to subject defendants to the harsh penalties, including mandatory sentences, that are part of the Federal arsenal. As an example, in certain drug cases defendants in Federal court can face a sentence of life imprisonment. This is incredible but absolutely true. Also, many defendants in Federal court are not granted release on bail but are detained until the time of trial.
