Assisting Individuals in Portland with Defending Against Federal Criminal Charges

If you are the target of a federal criminal offense or if you have already been indicted on federal charges, it is important that you speak with an experienced attorney as soon as possible. Federal criminal cases are far more serious than state cases, and generally speaking, they move significantly faster. A conviction for a federal crime can also lead to serious penalties, including incarceration in federal prison for a significant period of time. 

If you or someone you love is currently facing federal criminal charges, the knowledgeable Portland federal crimes defense attorneys at The Maine Criminal Defense Group are here to help. We can speak with federal prosecutors about the charge and may be able to negotiate a plea deal. We also take federal criminal cases to trial when that is in the best interest of a particular client. 

Types of Federal Crimes

Crimes can be prosecuted at the federal level if they involve a violation of federal law or if the alleged criminal activities crossed state lines. Some common types of crimes that are prosecuted at the federal level include cyber-crimes (such as computer hacking), federal drug crimes (such as drug trafficking offenses that cross state lines), terrorism crimes, conspiracy crimes, wire fraud, money laundering, kidnapping, forgery, mail fraud, bank fraud, tax crimes, and child pornography offenses

If you have received a target letter or already been charged with committing any of these crimes, it is essential that you retain an experienced federal defense attorney as soon as possible to assist you with your legal matter. Your lawyer can immediately speak with you about your charge and take the necessary legal actions. 

Why You Need an Experienced Attorney on Your Side

The filing of criminal complaint typically begins a federal prosecution. However, in the federal system, individuals who are the target of an investigation are usually notified by letter beforehand. The target letter you receive might summon you to a meeting with a federal prosecutor or request certain information. 

It is important that you always speak with an experienced Portland federal crimes defense lawyer before speaking with a federal prosecutor or federal law enforcement. This is because anything that you say will be used against you at some point along the way. It is unwise to think that speaking with a federal prosecutor yourself will give you an opportunity to explain away certain conduct. In fact, it can cause extremely serious damage to your case – and any potential defenses that may be available to you. Obtaining experienced legal counsel as early on in the process as possible is usually the best way to avoid federal charges from being filed against you in the first place.
