Get help finding the Right Criminal Defense Lawyer for your case
A federal criminal procedure is when a person is prosecuted in the federal courts on a charge of violating a federal criminal law and is subject to federal criminal procedure. Federal procedures are governed by certain provisions of the U.S. Constitution, especially those contained in the Bill of Rights (the first ten amendments to the Constitution). The Constitution guarantees certain procedural rights that the government must afford to a federal criminal defendant, unless the defendant knowingly and voluntarily waives (surrenders) these rights.
Federal criminal procedures included being contacted by the federal authorities. The first thing you want to know if you are being contacted by the federal authorities is if you are a potential witness or as a suspect. The second thing you must be careful about is the statement you are given to the federal authorities without potentially falling into a trap, such as being charged with lying to federal agents. The third thing you want to do is to contact a federal criminal lawyer. Often people who are unrepresented by a federal criminal attorney testify in front of the grand jury and find themselves facing severe penalties.
It is important that during any federal criminal proceedings that you are represented by a federal criminal defense lawyer who is familiar with federal rules of evidence, criminal procedure, trial procedure, and the federal court system. The federal criminal law lawyer should also be familiar with federal sentencing procedures, and with the recent Supreme Court rulings which affect sentencing. It is also highly recommended that you hire a federal criminal lawyer that has significant years of experience dealing with the federal system and who has won several cases in the federal court.
