What To Do If You Are The Subject Of A Federal Investigation

In many federal Criminal Cases, suspects are investigated for weeks, months or even longer before law enforcement moves in. The sooner you retain legal counsel, the more likely you are to beat the charges against you. Remember your rights – you do not have to talk to law enforcement or police. If you believe your home or phone is bugged or you are under surveillance by the FBI, DEA, IRS or other federal law enforcement branch, you need to consult an attorney.

How is a federal case different than a normal case?

When you break a state law, you are charged with a misdemeanor or felony and sent to the county jail or state prison. If you break a federal law, federal law enforcement agencies such as the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) investigate your case. If convicted, you are sent to a federal prison. Generally, federal offenses are penalized much more severely than state-level crimes. Some examples of federal crimes include:

  • Drug trafficking
  • Kidnapping
  • Healthcare fraud
  • Mail fraud
  • Identity theft

If you or your loved one is arrested for any type of federal crime in Texas, consult a San Antonio attorney as soon as possible. Federal prosecutors move swiftly to gather evidence and close cases. Do not let yourself be made an example, and do not wait to be arrested before securing representation.
