Medford Federal Crimes Attorney
Delivering the Serious Defense You Need
If you've been charged with a federal crime, act fast to get a skilled attorney on your side. Although no criminal accusation should be taken lightly, this is especially true for federal charges. The investigation process leading up to the arrest is lengthy. This means the U.S. Attorney handling the case may have an abundance of evidence against you even before you know you're suspected of violating a law. Additionally, if you're convicted, you could spend years to decades in federal prison.
Hesitating to retain legal counsel could be costly. Contact The Law Office of Justin Rosas immediately to begin discussing your case. During your free initial consultation, I'll take the time to get to know you and your circumstances to fully understand the facts. I'll also talk about your legal options and how I can help you fight your charges. When you hire me for effective defense against a federal crime charge, I'll develop an innovative strategy personalized for your specific case.
Protecting your rights and best interests is my top priority as I challenge the federal prosecutor handling your case. To get started, call my firm today at (541) 933-5972.
Providing Representation for Various Federal Crimes
In the U.S., both states and the federal government have laws concerning behavior that can be considered a crime. Offenses can be charged at the state or federal level, or both. What separates a state from a federal crime is where or how it took place.
A federal offense is one that:
- Violates U.S. government laws,
- Crosses state or country lines,
- Is committed on federal property, such as a national park or post office
I handle numerous types of federal charges, including those involving:
- Bank fraud: This type of offense occurs when someone uses deceit to procure money or other property in custody of a bank, credit union, or other financial institution.
- Drug smuggling: A person could be accused of this crime when they move drugs across state or country lines.
- Healthcare fraud: An individual commits healthcare fraud when they knowingly misrepresent information to obtain benefits from healthcare programs. Offenders can include both healthcare providers and beneficiaries.
- Money laundering: This is a complex scheme that involves concealing the origins of illegally obtained money to make it appear as if it was legitimately earned.
- RICO offenses: These charges arise when a person is accused of being committing a "pattern of racketeering activity" for a criminal enterprise. Several offenses could be prosecuted as RICO crimes.
- Tax evasion: If a person purposefully evades paying taxes to the government, they could be accused of committing this offense.
What Are the Penalties for a Federal Conviction?
The punishments for being found guilty of a federal crime are harsh. Generally, they result in several years behind bars and thousands of dollars in fines. Because there are different types of federal crimes, there are also different types of conviction penalties. For instance, a conviction for a money laundering offense could result in imprisonment for up to 20 years and/or a fine of up to $500,000 or twice the value of the instruments involved. Being found guilty of bank fraud could result in a prison sentence of up to 30 years and/or a fine of up to $1,000,000.
