 Satawa Law, PLLC

Federal Crimes

Federal Government Power

The federal government is a powerful adversary with almost unlimited resources to harass, intimidate, seize assets of, and prosecute any individual or group. The increase in the number and coverage of federal laws since the 1960s is staggering, with an explosion of federal laws often being used to criminalize matters otherwise non-federal, under the cover of in or “affecting” interstate commerce, which can extend to just about anything. Then, on top of that, they often will stack on charges of “conspiracy” and “racketeering” and “using a telecommunications device” to build the potential punishments.

The imprisonments imposed under federal law can be far greater than imagined, often with high mandatory minimum sentences, and discretion to make sentences for multiple counts consecutive. Whether you are charged based on claims of drug trafficking, or child pornography, or other sex crimes, or fraud, or firearms, or public corruption, or protest activities, or any of the other of the thousands of federal crimes, you may already have been demonized by public opinion.

This gives the prosecutor enormous bargaining power to try to force an accused person into an undesirable plea bargain, whether the person is innocent or not, whether law enforcement witnesses or other witnesses are lying or not, whether the so-called “scientific” evidence is a pile of garbage or not.
