How Are Federal Crimes Handled?

Federal investigations are usually conducted by federal agencies with seemingly limitless resources. If the investigating agency believes that it has enough evidence obtained that a person committed a federal offense, it will issue an indictment, setting forth information regarding the potential criminal charge. It is possible to have criminal charges dismissed prior to trial in some instances.

Fortunately, federal criminal attorney R. Michael Bullotta has comprehensive understanding of the federal sentencing guidelines and how they can work for or against you at the federal level
