Federal Crime Attorney in St. Louis

State crimes are those which violate state laws. Usually, the offense is contained within the state's boundaries. When a crime is committed throughout more than one state, crosses a state line, is committed on federal property, or is specifically listed as a federal offense, it is investigated by federal law enforcement agencies, such as the FBI, DEA, State Department and others. It is then prosecuted in federal courts and that is why an attorney who is authorized to practice in this arena is vital. Federal criminal procedures differ from those in state courts and the judges use federal sentencing guidelines in calculating punishment for serious crimes. Each crime is given a basic value with points added and subtracted according to the specific facts of the case.

Federal offenses make up over 100 categories of crimes. These include various types of white collar crimes such as fraud or federal drug offenses such as manufacturing and trafficking. Sex crimes like child pornography, federal conspiracy charges, espionage, immigration law violations, kidnapping, money laundering, tax crimes, terrorism and more also fall under federal jurisdiction. Federal criminal investigators and prosecutors are among the toughest of their peers, with access to the full resources of the federal government. Because of the gravity of being prosecuted for a federal crime, you will need an aggressive defense lawyer who will look for and exploit any weak point in a prosecutor's case. By discussing your case with a lawyer from the firm, you can be confident that it will be in knowledgeable and determined hands.
