Federal Crimes

 

Federal crimes usually involve conduct or contraband which has traveled across state lines. Building on this concept, the United States government has defined the following crimes to be federal in nature:

  • Large-scale narcotics conspiracies;
  • Threats against public officials;
  • Bribery of public officials;
  • Fraud via the mail system, computers, or telephones;
  • Fraud involving public and private health care facilities;
  • Possession, Manufacture, or distribution of obscene materials or child pornography;
  • Money Laundering;
  • Tax Evasion; and,
  • All manner of computer crimes

The above list is merely illustrative; there are many other federal crimes which have not been listed. Now, maybe - just maybe - one should consider representing one's self in a state case. NOT SO IN A FEDERAL CASE. The process is just too treacherous and too laden with bright, aggressive federal prosecutors. Unlike the state system, which is much more overworked than the federal system, federal prosecutors are well prepared and have markedly better courtroom skills than a conventional state prosecutor. And the police officers are certainly more competent: whereas a state case usually begins with an arrest by local police officers, the federal process begins with an arrest, surveillance, or interrogation by FBI, DEA, or Secret Service Agents. The federal criminal system should not be navigated without having an experienced criminal defense attorney by your side.

Perhaps the biggest difference between the federal and state system is the presence in the federal system of the Sentencing Guidelines. In the state system, the judges are generally allowed to sentence an individual in just about any manner they want. NOT SO IN A FEDERAL CASE. In the federal system, federal judges are controlled by the Sentencing Guidelines, which is a complicated method of determining how much jail or prison time a convicted person must serve. The potential prison term is calculated using a grid, which factors in one's past criminal history and all the details of the present offense. Once the number is arrived at on the sentencing table, a federal judge is required by Congress to assess the corresponding sentence. In essence, federal sentencing is more a creature of math than it is judicial discretion. The only way to deviate from the Guidelines is to persuade the court to grant a downward departure, which is really granted.

Regarding the seriousness of the Sentencing Guidelines, don't take our word for it; listen to what the Courts have to say. The Court of Appeals in the District of Columbia recently explained that that "familiarity with the structure and basic content of the [Federal Sentencing] Guidelines . . . has become a necessity for [defense] counsel who seek to give effective representation." The Court also stated:

Whether [defense] lawyers get the Guidelines wrong by misinterpreting the implication of a particular provision or by failing altogether to raise a potentially helpful provision, such drastic missteps . . . amount to errors so serious that counsel was not functioning as the 'counsel' guaranteed the defendant by the [United States Constitution's] Sixth Amendment.

If you want not just any old "counsel," but aggressive, confident defense counsel who will be by your side every step of the way, then call Barry Sands and Mark McBride today. (877) BGS-CRIMLYR

White Collar Crimes

 

White collar crime is an act of theft or other criminal conduct which violates a corporate or government officer’s fiduciary duties. Thus, if a person is acting in a position of financial trust or management for a client, a business, or a government agency, and they do something illegal, stealing the company’s funds, for example, then that person has committed a white collar crime. Thus the key element in the definition of white collar crime is that a person has been placed in a position of trust and that they have used that position to unjustly enrich themselves at the expense of the organization or client for whom they work.

These cases are being taken extremely seriously by the government these days, and the penalties can be severe, including years of imprisonment and huge fines. At the same time, these cases can be highly problematic for prosecutors to prosecute, because of their complexity. In order to win at trial, the prosecutor has to prove that the person actually intended to commit a criminal act. This is many times difficult to prove; because the prosecutor has to prove the person’s state of mind, and, at the same time, present complex financial information to a jury who has to actually understand what the prosecutor is trying to prove. Thus, white collar cases offer criminal defense lawyers a variety of ways to defend their clients against such charges.

Fortunately, many times these cases can be dealt with through negotiations with the police and federal agents and the prosecutors involved in the investigation – usually the local district attorney’s office in Los Angeles, Orange County, Riverside, Ventura, Los Angeles Counties or the US Attorney’s Office. The goal is to get the case dismissed before the client is ever arrested. This is extremely critical as the client’s entire career as a corporate or government officer may be on the line.

Mr. Sands handles a wide range of White Collar criminal charges involving the following:

  • Accounting Fraud
  • Antitrust Violations
  • Bank Fraud
  • Bankruptcy Fraud
  • Computer Fraud
  • Conspiracy
  • Corporate Fraud
  • Embezzlement charges
  • Mail Fraud
  • Money Laundering
  • Multi-level Marketing Fraud
  • RICO Violations
  • Public Deception
  • Securities Fraud
  • Tax Fraud
  • Tax evasion
  • Wire Fraud
If you have been charged with a white collar crime, it is important that you contact attorney Barry Sands today to protect your legal rights. He is available 24/7 and may be reached through email and by phone at (877) BGS-CRIMLYR (877-247-2746)
