Federal Charges Archives

Made a health care billing or coding mistake? Don't hesitate to contact a criminal defense lawyer

Doctors and medical professionals accused of health care or insurance fraud face not only possible prison time; these kinds of charges, whether on the state or federal level, can completely end careers and destroy reputations.

Police must follow strict protocol to search a computer for evidence

Police investigators in Florida and throughout the country use sophisticated technology to conduct remote searches of people's computers. These searches are often done without the computer owner's knowledge.

Florida has one of the highest rates of wrongful conviction

Each year people who have been convicted of violent crimes are exonerated after having served years in prison. These are tragic cases, and according to the National Registry of Exonerations, Florida has one of the highest rates of exoneration among all of the states. So far this year, 81 people have been exonerated nationwide, and since 1989 (which is as far back as the national registry goes), 1,467 individuals have been exonerated.

Protecting against federal charges with early intervention

If you are being investigated by a federal agency such as the FBI, the DEA or the IRS, then it is crucial that you seek legal counsel as soon as possible. Specifically, it is important to have a criminal defense attorney with experience in federal court. Federal criminal charges are handled differently than state criminal charges, and not all criminal defense attorneys handle federal cases.

A drug possession charge in the State of Florida can have serious consequences, but a federal charge such as drug trafficking or importation can result in even harsher penalties, including a long prison sentence. Because the stakes so high, it is crucial for individuals facing federal drug charges to have a criminal defense attorney with experience in handling cases in federal court.

Anyone facing drug charges under Florida law should take the matter very seriously. Whether you've been accused of a crime related to marijuana, prescription drugs, heroin or some other narcotic, the penalties for a conviction could change your life permanently.
