Federal Criminal Defense

A federal crime violates a law or statute that the federal government enforces. These offenses are prosecuted in federal court, which differs from state court.  Having an experienced federal criminal attorney in Chicago is crucial if you face any of these charges because they carry harsher punishments than a state. 

However, the crimes are considered more serious offenses that threaten national security or the interests of the United States, as the accused must undergo a more rigorous legal process than someone charged with a state law offense.

Some of the most common national crimes that are prosecuted in Illinois include:

  • Drug trafficking
  • Money laundering
  • Bank robbery
  • Embezzlement
  • Wire fraud
  • Tax evasion
  • Child pornography
  • Terrorism

Are you facing federal criminal charges in Chicago, Illinois

The punishments for committing such crimes in Illinois vary depending on the severity of the offense. They will be determined by the judge, who will consider all of the relevant factors, including criminal history,  the impact of the crime on the victim, and any other relevant factors.

 Criminal activities are prohibited by state and federal laws, and each jurisdiction determines the appropriate penalties for committing those crimes. Depending on the severity of the offense, different penalties may be imposed, but some common punishments include:

  • Imprisonment: The length of prison term might be anywhere from a few months to life.
  • Fines: Penalties may total $500,000 or more.
  • Probation: When you are on probation, you are not in jail but are required to abide by rules, including drug testing, community service, and close monitoring by a probation officer.
  • Confinement at home: In a special kind of probation known as home confinement, you must stay in your house for a set amount of time.
  • Forfeiture of civil rights: Your civil rights, such as the ability to vote or hold public office, may be restricted.
