What Are Federal Offenses?

Federal crimes are any criminal acts that have been made illegal by U.S. federal legislation. In most cases, federal charges are more severe than state charges and carry harsher penalties for a conviction.

Below are some of the federal cases that our team has experience with:

White-Collar Crimes

While not all white-collar crimes are federal offenses, many of them are. Mail fraud, bank fraud, wire fraud, and insider trading are just some of the charges you may face in a white-collar federal case. Our team can help you defend yourself against white-collar charges to avoid jail time and fines.

Drug Charges

Serious drug offenses, like trafficking and cultivation, are often charged at the federal level. In many cases, they are investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA).

Human Smuggling

Bringing someone into the U.S. or attempting to bring them into the U.S. can be a federal human smuggling charge. Similarly, aiding and abetting smuggling or even committing conspiracy to smuggle can also be charged at the federal level.

What Are the Potential Penalties for Federal Convictions?

The exact penalties you may face depend on the nature of your charges and your previous criminal record. However, many federal convictions carry serious penalties. Most federal judges in Texas follow the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, which are a set of mathematical rules that allow the U.S. Probation Office to recommend a sentence for a conviction. Our team can challenge and object to the recommendation before the sentencing hearing to protect your freedom. In some instances, our team can negotiate for probation in the place of decades spent in prison.

Having a conviction on your record can also impact your life in other ways. Many convicted criminals find it difficult to get a job, facing discrimination from employers and hiring managers. Similarly, landlords and property managers often hesitate to rent to convicted criminals, meaning you could find it hard to secure housing. Some government benefits are also off-limits to those with criminal records, and after certain felony convictions, you may be unable to own or operate a firearm. If you are facing federal criminal charges, reach out to our team today to avoid these harsh penalties.
