St. Louis Federal Crimes Lawyer
Defending Clients Who Are Facing Federal Crime Charges in Missouri
Allegations of a federal offense have the potential to change your life forever, resulting in a loss of freedom and rights. Challenging federal charges may seem a daunting task, particularly when you consider the resources and clout of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), and other federal agencies, not to mention the experience and manpower at the fingertips of federal prosecutors.
The St. Louis federal crime attorneys at The Hammer Law Firm, LLC recognize the serious nature of these charges and proceedings and utilize our own resources and experience to protect defendants' rights inside and outside of the federal courtroom.
Federal Crime Cases We Handle
You can learn more about specific federal crimes and the steps our legal team can take to challenge these offenses by reviewing the following subjects:
This federal crime involves defrauding a financial institution. A person may face bank fraud charges for defrauding or attempting to defraud a bank or other similar institution, even if the scheme is unsuccessful. Devising the scheme and taking a step toward its completion may be sufficient for bank fraud charges.
An extremely serious offense due to the fact that it is a sex crime that can be charged on a federal level, child pornography involves the possession, creation, distribution, or sale of pornographic material depicting minors. In addition to facing imprisonment and fines, a defendant convicted of this type of offense may face lifetime sex offender registration.
Manufacturing, selling, possessing for sale, or distributing controlled substances may fall under the category of drug trafficking. When state lines or national borders are crossed or a substantial amount of drugs are involved, federal agencies are likely to investigate and prosecute these cases.
Taking and holding another person against his or her will is the basic definition of kidnapping, and if state lines or national borders are crossed or the victim is a government official, the FBI or other federal agencies may become involved. Depending on the case, a defendant may face life in prison for kidnapping.
Difference Between State & Federal Crimes
Because federal crimes differ from state crimes in many ways - including the investigating agencies, procedures, and more serious penalties and prison terms – it is essential for anyone facing federal charges to work with attorneys who are not only licensed to practice in federal court but who also have extensive experience dealing with federal prosecutors, federal law enforcement, and the steps needed to help accused individuals secure the most successful outcome possible when the stakes are high.
