Lately, there has been a rush of prosecutions in the area of what we legal practitioners like to call White Collar Crime. Of course, this term is just the umbrella descriptor for a whole host of federal crimes for which convictions can have dire consequences. This would include criminal allegations of Public Corruption, Extortion, Bribery, Fraud such as Medicare/Medicaid, Mortgage and Insurance Fraud, and Embezzlement. These particularly complex federal crimes require skilled counsel with the knowledge and expertise to evaluate the substance of the case and provide the right defense. Substance over form trumps form over substances here. Many attorneys with general practices like to represent that they can handle these federal criminal cases because of relative success in State and Local courts. Unfortunately, the opposite is too often the case. Federal Criminal Defense involves a whole separate set of rules and laws than that of State courts. Additionally, these rules are more stringent, have often unforeseen consequences, and therefore requires legal counsel with the required legal acumen to jump on board and steer the client toward success- or better stated to salvage the client’s life. That is why it is critically important to have a legal team with the resources, experience and level of skill necessary to represent your interests. Not doing so could mean your life as you know it.
These federal cases are becoming more prevalent in our society. We see it every day in our government, corporations, and education system where individuals are accused of violating federal law as it pertains to a host of activities deemed illicit by statute. With the whole “interstate commerce” thing, that could mean almost anything when it comes to the use of one’s PC to transfer funds, etc. Recently, St. Louis and its surrounding area has seen an influx of these type federal criminal prosecutions and the sad result of poor decision making as it pertains to choosing the right law group. The result- too much restitution, too much prison time and the dismantling on many families. This is where is incumbent on any person accused of a federal crime to do their research.
