Federal Criminal Charges

Detroit Federal Crimes Attorney

Federal cases can be extremely complex and difficult to contest. These cases are investigated and prosecuted by federal government agencies and experienced U.S. attorneys, often in conjunction with local authorities. Federal prosecutors generally do not pursue charges unless they are convinced that they’ll get a conviction. 

At The Law Office of Kevin Bessant & Associates, we believe that absolutely no one should fight federal criminal charges on their own and that every person should have access to skilled legal counsel. This is not the time to compromise on your legal defense or leave your fate in the hands of an inexperienced legal team. Too much is at stake. Your future and freedom depend on the outcome of your case. Our founder and Detroit federal crimes lawyer, Attorney Kevin Bessant, has defended countless clients against criminal charges of all kinds. You can trust that he has the experience you’ll need to reach a favorable outcome for your circumstances. 

If you have been charged with, arrested for, or even convicted of a federal offense, contact our federal crimes attorney in Detroit. 

How Do Federal Crimes Differ from State Charges?

The biggest difference between federal and state charges has to do with their prosecution. State criminal offenses are investigated and tried by state prosecutors. Federal offenses, on the other hand, are prosecuted by federal authorities. This can make a significant difference in the strength of the case brought against you. Federal prosecutors have more resources available to them and, as such, are more methodical than state authorities when it comes to accumulating evidence and building their cases. Federal crimes can also be more serious than state-level misdemeanors or felonies because they typically result in longer sentences and permanent criminal records that cannot normally be expunged. Furthermore, people convicted on these charges will be incarcerated at federal facilities rather than local or state prisons. 

Common federal crimes include: 

  • Tax evasion
  • Certain gun and weapon charges
  • Bank robbery
  • Kidnapping and abduction 
  • Terrorism, bombings, and arson
  • Federal anti-trust violations
  • Child pornography and other sex crimes
  • Fraud (health care, tax, and mail fraud)
  • Important and export crimes
  • Counterfeiting 
  • Computer and internet crimes
  • Racketeering (RICO)
  • Certain drug charges (such as drug trafficking)
