Federal Charges Need A Tough Response
Although criminal sentencing in Illinois has a reputation for strict penalties, federal sentencing is arguably harsher. An experienced attorney could make a critical difference in the outcome of your defense case.
Mr. Baker is ready to fully address federal criminal charges, such as:
- Federal drug crimes, including conspiracy
- Federal weapons charges
- White collar infractions, including fraud, embezzlement and money laundering
A few factors determine whether the charges against someone would be a federal or state crime, including whether the crime happened across state lines or on federal property. There are also important differences between federal criminal cases and state criminal cases. For example, if you face federal charges, your case will enter federal court instead of state court. The potential penalties may differ between state and federal convictions as well.
