The complexities of the federal court system

Have you been charged with a federal crime? If the answer is yes, you are in a serious situation that calls for immediate action. Any mistake, no matter how inconsequential it may appear, could put you in a worse position in the near future.

There are many complexities to the federal court system, including, but not limited to, the following:

-- Sentencing guidelines. It is imperative to understand the sentencing guidelines associated with your crime. Remember, sentencing at the state level is not the same as the federal level.

-- False statements. If you make a false statement, you could be arrested on a 1001 charge. This is defined as willfully and knowingly making a false or fraudulent statement to the authorities.

-- Federal procedures. There are many differences between state and federal procedures. For example, federal courts only use electronic filings.

It would work out better for everyone involved if the federal court system was easy to understand; however, this is not the case now, it never has been in the past, and it probably won't be in the future.
