Charged with a Federal Crime?


Federal Criminal Charges

If you violate federal law, you can be charged with a federal crime and prosecuted in federal court. Unlike certain types of other crimes, which can be prosecuted in the state court with lesser penalties and the potential for parole, federal charges generally carry much harsher sentences. There is also no option for parole within the federal system. With so much at stake, those charged with federal crimes can’t afford to not use a respected attorney skilled enough to handle high-caliber federal cases.

Federal Sentencing Guidelines

The U.S. court system sentences those convicted of federal offenses under the United States Federal Sentencing Guidelines. These non-binding rules set uniform sentences for all defendants convicted within the federal court system; federal judges use them to determine the appropriate sentence for each crime.

Because the federal criminal justice system uses very harsh mandatory minimum sentences for various crimes, it’s crucial for anyone charged with a federal offense to work with a lawyer who is knowledgeable in federal criminal law, specifically. Karen A. Connolly has secured many not guilty verdicts in federal criminal cases, including reversals in five murder cases. Ms. Connolly will work hard to mount a defense to the federal criminal charges you are facing and will remain dedicated to protecting your rights in federal court.
