When the federal government is involved in a criminal case, you are in serious trouble. These are some of the toughest investigative and prosecuting teams in the country, and they are supported by almost unlimited resources. A conviction on a federal offense often results in a long prison term in federal prison, and the penalties are often much more severe than at the state level. If you are under investigation for any federal offense or have been arrested, it is crucial that you contact a Fort Myers criminal defense attorney from Calvo & Calvo, Attorneys at Law. We have extensive experience in defending cases in federal court. This is a completely different court system, with its own personnel, procedures and penalties, and experience in working within this system is vital if you hope to avoid severe punishment.
Many types of federal offenses are related to financial crimes such as fraud, computer fraud, credit card fraud, identity theft, drug importation and crimes committed on federal property. The government gets very interested in those they believe are committing illegal acts related to the banking industry. Many recent high profile cases have increased federal attention on such crimes, and task forces dedicated to identifying and arresting those who are involved in RICO crimes or other financial crimes are hard at work.
If you are questioned about a federal crime, it is critical that you immediately get legal representation - before you answer questions. When questioned, there is an arrest that will take place in the near future and this is usually an effort to get more information from you to use against you in court. We will protect your rights and carefully manage every aspect of your defense, always protecting your best interests.
