Being charged with a federal crime in North Carolina is different than being charged with a state felony or with misdemeanor charges. Cases tend to move through federal court relatively quickly. In addition, pretrial motions and discovery of evidence can be different for a federal case compared to a non-federal one. Our firm has experience with federal cases, including identifying relevant government agencies and obtaining the evidence needed to prove our client's case.
There are many types of federal crimes that we have experience in representing. These crimes include money laundering, counterfeiting, mail fraud, Internet crimes, bank robbery, income tax fraud and federal drug crimes. Federal drug crimes include drug trafficking, drug conspiracies and both possession and distribution of drugs. We aim to help our clients navigate the federal court system in order to obtain a fair result.
Being convicted of a federal crime can have long-term negative consequences. This could include incarceration, fines and a criminal record that could haunt a person for years to come. This is especially true in situations in which a person must undergo a criminal background check, for example, when applying for a job. As you can see, it is important to fight federal charges and prove your innocence. Your very life and reputation could be at stake.
