In the United States, a federal offense is considered an act which is illegal according to United States federal laws. Prosecution can occur at either or both the federal and state levels.
As an experienced Tulsa criminal defense attorney, I handle matters of local and state law, and provide Federal criminal defense to those who have been charged with committing a Federal crime. Many Federal criminal law convictions can issue mandatory prison time with minimum sentences ranging anywhere from 5 to 10 years. Following that, a Federal conviction can easily destroy one's record when it comes to finding new employment, decrease the likelihood of obtaining grants, scholarships, and other methods of financial aid for college, or the candidacy for certain roles and offices within society.
The federal crimes court system moves more rapidly than the state and local courts. Having a criminal lawyer in Tulsa who understands your rights and how to protect you through the process is important. I am experienced in Federal crimes law and federal crimes trial.
