Fresno Federal Crimes Attorney

Offering Extensive Experience in Handling Federal Criminal Charges

Criminal charges may be prosecuted at either the federal or state level, depending on the nature of the crime involved.

Federal-level offenses are generally more serious than those at the state level due to more severe penalties imposed upon a conviction.

These alleged offenses are often subjected to exhaustive investigations by federal agencies, such as the FBI, IRS, DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency), ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives), ICE, and the Secret Service.

They are subject to the USSG (United State Sentencing Guidelines) which are one of several factors judges are required to consider in imposing a sentence, which can include time in federal prison, hefty fines, forfeiture of assets, a money judgment, and a lengthy period of supervision following release from prison.

What Happens When a Case Goes Federal?

In most federal criminal cases, defendants plead guilty and avoid trial. In that case, the defendant, being fully aware of any existing evidence, will go back to court and plead guilty in open court after being informed of the consequences of a plea.

If you have been charged with a federal crime, you need an experienced Fresno defense attorney such as Marc Days of the Days Law Firm.

An inexperienced attorney, unfamiliar with the federal court system and the Bail Reform Act, can cost you your freedom.

When charged, you will be taken without unnecessary delay before a magistrate judge for an initial appearance. It is vital that you have an experienced attorney to represent you at such a hearing and in all future federal court proceedings.

You can rely on our firm, backed by decades of federal court representation, for diligence and competence in the handling of your federal case.

Federal Criminal Charges

Our firm defends against all federal criminal charges and has extensive experience handling a broad range of charges including but not limited to:

  • Distribution of controlled substances and synthetic drugs.
  • Drug manufacturing and cultivation.
  • White collar crimes, such as money laundering, structuring, mail and wire fraud, and tax fraud.
  • Identity theft
  • Racketeering
  • Sex trafficking
  • Sexual exploitation
  • Child pornography
  • First-degree murder
  • Attempted murder
  • Kidnapping
  • Bank robbery
  • Firearms possession

Given the stakes, you need to be free of custody in order to best defend yourself. Knowledge of federal criminal procedure and the Bail Reform Act can make the difference between defending against the charges in custody or out of custody.

Under the Bail Reform Act, the court can release you unless there are no conditions that can reasonably assure your appearance and the safety of the community. If the court determines release in your favor, it will do so based on conditions it sets to reasonably assure that you reappear in court and are not a danger to the community.

Turn to Days Law Firm for an Aggressive Defense

Federal courts operate on different rules than state courts and your legal representative must be specially admitted to defend you in a federal court. Many of these crimes can involve penalties that include years or decades in federal prison systems as well as massive fines and/or restitution. Having an attorney in your corner from the first sign of a federal investigation is imperative if you wish to have the best chance of a positive outcome.

Our firm has proven itself repeatedly in obtaining successful results for clients in this situation. We urge you to take advantage of our depth of knowledge, resources, and skills at this critical time.
