Scottsdale Federal Crime Lawyer

Experienced Criminal Defense Attorney

Federal offenses are significantly different than state crimes. Not only are the processes and procedures more complex, but the penalties are also often more severe. With a surplus of resources at their disposal, prosecutors often build strong cases that ensure the defendant is punished to the fullest extent of the law.

If you are facing charges in federal court, it is crucial to select a criminal defense attorney who is experienced in handling these types of cases. I’m the Scottsdale federal crime attorney at Salwin Law Group PLLC who has the knowledge and skills to defend you against all types of criminal charges, including federal drug charges, sex crime charges, violent crime charges, and more.

For strategic counsel and aggressive representation, contact me at (480) 470-6119, or online.

When Crimes Are Handled by the Federal Court

While most criminal offenses are charged at the state level, some crimes may be prosecuted by the federal government. The federal government has jurisdiction over offenses that violate the U.S. Constitution or federal laws passed by Congress. A crime will also be handled at the federal level when it takes place on federal land, involves federal employees, or when the defendant crosses state lines.

There are several offenses that can be tried in federal court, including:

  • Mail fraud
  • Carjacking
  • Aircraft hijacking
  • Kidnapping
  • Identity theft
  • Bank robbery
  • Rape
  • Child pornography
  • Credit card fraud
  • Computer fraud
  • Tax evasion
  • Counterfeiting
  • White collar crimes

Determining the Penalties for Federal Crimes

When a crime is prosecuted in a federal court, penalties for convictions are determined by the Federal Sentencing Guidelines. This complex system provides sentencing ranges for varying levels of offenses. A judge also considers the defendant’s previous criminal history and any aggravating or mitigating factors to arrive at a final verdict.
