What To Do If You Are Charged With A Federal Crime
There are many criminal defense attorneys out there, but very few of them are licensed to practice in federal court. It may be surprising to some that you need to be admitted to federal court and not all criminal defense attorneys are. In fact, very few, a small percentage of them are admitted to federal court and an even smaller percentage of them actually go to federal court on a regular basis.
If you are charged with a criminal offense in federal court, it’s very important that you get a criminal defense attorney who regularly appears in federal court. The rules in federal court are dramatically different than the rules in state court. They have different crimes, different rules of criminal procedure, and different rules of evidence. They’re processed through the justice system differently. If you are convicted, there are federal sentencing guidelines unlike anything in the state system.
