Suffolk County federal criminal defense lawyer Jason Bassett releases a new article (https://jbassettlaw.com/practice-items/federal-defense/) that explains the federal criminal defense process in New York. The lawyer mentions that federal crimes are prosecuted under federal criminal law and not under state criminal law. A federal criminal offense means that the accused is up against prosecutors of the federal government.

“As a primary hub for many federal criminal prosecutions, New York sees a myriad of different offenses prosecuted in the United States District Courts for the Eastern and Southern Districts of New York. As soon as you learn that you are the target of a federal investigation or a prosecution for federal crimes, you must hire legal counsel to protect you and your legal rights,” says the Suffolk County federal criminal defense lawyer.

The lawyer explains that federal charges often carry sentences that may have a significant impact on the accused’s life. A federal criminal can face decades in federal prison. It may be hard to defend someone from a federal criminal charge since they are usually watched and investigated for a long time before they are arrested.

Attorney Jason Bassett also mentions that there are many kinds of federal crimes in the United States. These crimes include narcotics distribution, racketeering, money laundering, homicide, counterfeiting, conspiracy, firearm offenses, child pornography, computer crimes, medicare, fraud, bank fraud, mortgage fraud, wire fraud, securities fraud, investment schemes, mail fraud, Hobbs Act violations, drug crimes, and white-collar crimes.

In the article, attorney Bassett says that the federal criminal defense process in New York can vary depending on the case. However, there are common steps in the process which include investigation, arrest, initial appearance or arraignment, indictment, discovery, plea bargaining, pre-trial motions, trial, sentencing, and appeal.

Furthermore, the defense attorney says that federal sentencing is done in accordance with specific guidelines that judges are required to consider. The sentencing guidelines are written by an independent agency called the U.S. Sentencing Commission. The guidelines set out ranges to ensure that the fairness and consistency of sentencing are maintained.

Lastly, attorney Bassett emphasizes the importance of having a skilled defense lawyer when facing federal charges. An experienced lawyer may be able to help the defendant protect their rights and their freedom.
