Why Hire a Federal Criminal Defenses Attorney?
If you have been arrested for a federal offense you are entitled to a detention hearing. At a detention hearing, the Government bears the burden of establishing that no condition or combination of conditions of release will reasonably assure appearance of a defendant or the safety of the community. Under the Bail Reform Act, 18 U.S.C. § 3141 et seq., a person awaiting trial on a federal offense may either be released on personal recognizance or bond, conditionally released, or detained. See 18 U.S.C. § 3142(a). Bail is basic to our system of law. Doubts whether it should be granted or denied should always be resolved in favor of the defendant.
If you have been charged with a felony you have a right to a fair trial. Every criminal defendant is entitled to challenge the indictment against him or her. Pursuant to Rule 12(b), Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, a defendant may request that the judge dismiss the indictment or reduce the charges. In determining a request to dismiss an indictment, the most important consideration is whether the defendant can obtain a fair and impartial trial. The judge must liberally resolve any doubt in favor of the defendant. The Sixth Amendment provides every criminal defendant the right to a fair and impartial jury trial.
If you have been convicted of a felony you have a right to appeal the conviction and sentence. Occasionally, the government oversteps the line between a legal conviction and an illegal conviction. Sometimes the government or its agents induce an offense when an individual is not predisposed to commit the particular crime. Occasionally the government or its agents obtain statements or physical evidence illegally. Sometimes the police improperly stop a vehicle and obtain evidence based on that improper stop. Occasionally the government obtains an illegal search warrant based on insufficient or fabricated facts. Sometimes the prosecutor fails to disclose favorable evidence. Occasionally the government does not present sufficient evidence to support a conviction. Sometimes the jury is given improper jury instructions. Occasionally the judge is biased and refuses to step down or disqualify himself or herself. Sometimes the judge imposes an illegal sentence.
If you have been placed on federal probation or supervised release you may be eligible for modification or termination of your probation or supervised release. Pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3564, and § 3583, a Court, after considering the factors set forth in § 3553(a), may, terminate a term of probation or supervised release previously ordered and discharge the defendant at any time after the expiration of one year of probation or supervised, if it is satisfied that such action is warranted by the conduct of the defendant and in the interest of justice. Early termination of probation or supervised release is a decision entrusted to the sound discretion of the Court and is warranted in cases where a defendant demonstrates changed circumstances, such a exceptionally good behavior.
