Federal charges are very serious matters that must be handled appropriately. In our previous blog post, we discussed the diversity of people who have been charged with child pornography on a federal level. All of those people had one thing in common — they had to make decisions about how to handle their cases.

When you are facing federal charges, it might feel like you are in a hopeless situation. That isn’t the case. You do have options for your case. You can decide how to plead to the charges against you. You can decide how to handle your defense.

It is important for you to realize that federal charges demand special defenses. The defense options that work for a state court might not be effective in federal court. Federal prosecutors are difficult opponents to face in court, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try.

We know that federal cases are challenging to defend against and require a concentrated effort. We can help you as you explore the options for your defense that might be possible for the case. These all depend on the circumstances of the case and the evidence the prosecution is going to present. We can help you evaluate these points so that you know each option you have and how we might be able to put them together for a defense.

No matter what type of federal charges you are facing, you do have options to consider. Whether you choose to raise questions about your constitutional rights being violated or you choose another defense, you must carefully consider how it will be viewed by the jury and how the prosecution might react.
