St. Augustine Federal Crimes Defense Attorney
Federal Offenses in Florida
A federal offense is different from a state crime. Federal crimes fall under federal law and are prosecuted under the rules of federal criminal procedure.
If you or someone you care about is under investigation or has been charged with a federal criminal offense, it is important that you hire a criminal defense attorney who is experienced in handling federal criminal cases. You need a team that understands how the process works and that can ensure your rights are protected during the investigation and all subsequent proceedings.
At Canan Law, we are well-versed in federal criminal defense cases. Our St. Augustine federal crimes attorneys have decades of collective experience and, with more than 250 jury trials handled, our firm has earned a reputation for providing aggressive client advocacy in even the toughest of cases. We are highly respected by our clients, our peers, and judges, and we are ready to fight for you.
Penalties for Federal Crimes
The penalties associated with federal crime convictions range as widely as the types of federal offenses themselves. That being said, a federal offense conviction will almost always come with significant penalties, jeopardizing your freedom, your reputation, and your very future.
If you have been charged with a federal criminal offense, you could be facing:
- A lengthy prison sentence/life imprisonment
- Steep fines
- Restitution to victims
Even being accused of a federal crime can cause irreparable damage to your reputation, cause you to lose your job, and affect future opportunities. If you believe you may be under investigation or if you have already been arrested for a federal offense, you need an experienced federal criminal defense attorney immediately.
Individuals facing federal charges are up against an entirely different court system, set of rules, and different judges and prosecutors than at the state level. Further, mandatory minimum sentence or incarceration law could apply for those convicted of a federal offense. At Canan Law, we understand the federal criminal justice system and are prepared to help you navigate the process.
