by Federal criminal defense attorney Joe Bodiford
Federal charges can involve accusations of a crime that involve agencies such as the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF), Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), United States Marshals Service, the IRS Criminal Investigation Department (CID), or the United States Postal Service. Often times, a federal charge will involve charges dealing with actions on federal property, issues that deal with multiple states, or charges involving multiple defendants accused of working together in criminal activity, or a "conspiracy."

Many clients find themselves being charged with crimes under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (also known as RICO Act or RICO). This act allows for the government to bring federal or state racketeering charges against a person involved in ongoing criminal organizational activity. Some of these criminal activities include murder, kidnapping, extortion, embezzlement, various kinds of fraud, bribery, counterfeiting, and money laundering. If you find yourself charged under RICO, the government probably feels it has a strong case against you; if so, you need a heavy-hitting, aggressive attorney to start building your defense immediately. A RICO lawyer has to have the resources to begin work immediately as the charges and penalties are severe and you cannot afford to wait.
Federal cases are very serious and can carry minimum sentencing requirements without the possibility of parole. Federal Courts and Laws are NOT the same as State Laws and Courts.
