Defending Your Rights in Federal Court
If you are being investigated for or have been charged with a federal crime, you should seek experienced legal representation as soon as possible. Federal crimes are a serious matter that generally involve tougher penalties, federal sentencing guidelines, and tenacious prosecution. They are investigated by such federal agencies as the FBI, DEA, IRS, and others with the full backing and resources of the federal government. Federal prosecutors are those who have risen up through the state court ranks based on their ability, and they are some of the toughest to face.

Federal Crimes in California
Federal crimes include those involving issues over which the federal government has exclusive jurisdiction, such as the U.S. mail system, money and banking, and commerce. Thus, mail fraud and money laundering are both federal crimes. Crimes that cross state lines could also fall under federal law, such as drug trafficking and wire fraud.
Other examples of federal crimes could include:
- Armed robbery
- Child pornography
- Computer crimes/cyber crimes
- Securities fraud
- Investment scams
- Fraud against the government (as in Medicare fraud)
- Sex or human trafficking
- Credit card fraud
Certain crimes are subject to mandatory minimum prison sentences. These mandatory minimums are set by Congress as law to which federal judges must adhere. Federal judges are given federal sentencing guidelines which can be used to determine the prison sentence for certain criminal convictions.
