Miami Federal Criminal Defense Attorneys 

Federal Criminal charges can be some of the most serious criminal charges one cane face in the criminal justice system.  Many times, the U.S. government investigates federal criminal cases for several years.  By the time you realize you are being investigated or charged, the government could have substantial evidence against you.  In addition, federal charges carry some of the highest minimum mandatory sentences and maximum sentences under the law.

In the fiscal year for 2017, 53,899 federal criminal cases were filed in the United States according to the statistics calculated with the United States Attorney’s Office.   Federal crimes carry potential consequences of incarceration, probation, fines, and immigration consequences. You need to retain an aggressive criminal defense attorney immediately after being notified of a federal charge or federal criminal investigation.

Types of Federal Crimes In Miami, FL

There are many different types of federal crimes in the United States.  The federal government investigates and prosecutes crimes ranging from serious violent felonies to minor economic crimes.

Hubbs Law handles all types of federal crimes including:

 

Federal Criminal Process 

Federal crimes are investigated by a number of federal government agencies including, but not limited to, the FBI, ATF, DEA, DHS, and other agencies.  It’s possible that you won’t know that you are being investigated as most of these agencies engage in lengthy investigations where they do not look to charge defendants with crimes until the entire investigation is completed.  In addition, these investigations could take years and involve dozens of Defendants. 

When the government is ready to file charges against an individual, they typically seek an indictment from the grand jury.  A grand jury, just like a jury in the United States, is comprised with normal ordinary citizens who are responding to their civic duty.  The only difference between a normal jury trial and a grand jury proceeding is that, in a grand jury proceeding, the defense does not have the right to be present, cross examine witnesses, or put on a defense.  The proceeding is completely one sided and the prosecution only has the burden of proving probable cause that a crime occurred rather than the normal burden of proof at a jury trial of beyond a reasonable doubt.  The result is almost always the prosecution securing an indictment against the Defendant.

If the grand jury finds there is enough evidence for the prosecution to secure an indictment, a warrant will be issued for the Defendant’s arrest.
