Federal Criminal Defense

Defending federal charges is very different than defending state charges. Because of the complex nature of the sentencing guidelines and the different rules required by Federal Court, you must hire an attorney who is licensed in federal court and who has experience handling these types of cases. Attorney Dayna L. Jones has defended individuals in federal court and knows the rules of the sentencing guidelines.

Federal crimes are thoroughly investigated by federal agencies such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Drug Enforcement Administration and the U.S. Attorney’s Office prosecutes individuals arrested for federal offenses.

Federal charges include the following:

  • Drug possession
  • Drug Trafficking
  • Alien Smuggling
  • Illegal entry
  • Fraud
  • Money Laundering
  • Child Pornography

Because federal law enforcement spend a lot time investigating cases before making arrests, once arrested the government may have a substantial amount of information against you. If you know that you are being investigated for a federal offense or you have already been arrested, hiring a lawyer to assist you at every turn in a federal case is essential. There is a greater opportunity to work with the U.S. Attorney’s office in reaching your best possible outcome of your case, but you need a lawyer to assist with this process.

One of the most complicated areas of the law is the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines. The Sentencing Guidelines are complex and take into consideration nearly every factor of a defendant’s life, the current offense and prior convictions as well, in determining what the proper range of punishment for a defendant is. If you do not have a lawyer who is well versed in the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines, you may suffer consequences that could result in spending more time in federal prison than you should have to.
