Understanding The Differences Between State And Federal Charges
If you are facing federal criminal charges or are the subject of a federal criminal investigation, it is important to know what is at stake and how the process will work. The first move you make should be to contact Keith Gore, an experienced federal criminal defense attorney in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, including the Northern and Eastern Districts of Texas.
Federal Law Enforcement Uses All Of Their Resources At Their Disposal
The main difference in federal cases is the level of resources that the U.S. attorney’s office, FBI, DEA and ATF have at their disposal. As such, they can afford to be thorough in their investigations. That means when you are arrested, they believe that they have overwhelming evidence that they can use against you.
A former prosecutor, judge and grand jury foreman, Keith Gore understands these cases from all perspectives, allowing him to anticipate the prosecution’s maneuvering better and build a response that gives you the best chance at a positive outcome.
Because they believe they have an incredible amount of leverage over you, federal prosecutors will often offer plea deals with long sentences. Additionally, federal sentencing law does not allow for parole, the fines are often much higher than in state court, and federal prosecutors routinely use asset forfeiture penalties to seize houses, cars and cash.
