If you have been charged with a federal crime you are up against an extremely formidable adversary. Federal prosecutors concentrate on the most serious of crimes and have extraordinary resources at their disposal to cement their cases. They have access to an alphabet soup of agencies such as the FBI, BATF, IRS, SEC, NSA and dozens of others. Federal crimes tend to be of a more serious nature than state charges and most oftentimes involve acts of an interstate character. Prosecutors concentrate on fewer cases but with more fervor. These can range from domestic/political terrorism to insider trading, business racketeering, conspiracy, counterfeiting, weapons dealing, mail fraud, computer/Internet fraud, kidnapping and corrupt foreign practices. They have the best investigative resources in the world coupled to unlimited funding to pursue their case. They boast of a 97% conviction rate to show for their efforts.
