San Antonio Federal Crime Defense Attorney

Federal Crimes Attorneys ▪ Federal Sentencing Guidelines Lawyer

The San Antonio, Texas criminal defense Law Office of Anthony B. Cantrell wants you to know something that you will not hear from other criminal law attorneys. An experienced state court criminal lawyer with little or no knowledge or understanding of the complexities of federal criminal law can do as much harm as good in many instances. Federal court is completely different from state court. Some examples include:

  • Bond is different and sometimes unavailable
  • Discovery and the rules of evidence are different
  • The caselaw and statutes are different
  • Jury selection is different
  • Penalties are governed by the Federal Sentencing Guidelines

If you or someone you know has been arrested by federal authorities and taken to a federal detention center, you will probably face trial in federal court. Federal authorities can also step in even if local authorities make the arrest. There are many kinds of offenses that fall under the classification of “federal crimes,” such as:

  • Federal Drug Offenses, including Narcotic Conspiracy
  • Smuggling Controlled Substances
  • Internet Crimes
  • Interstate Crimes
  • Bank Robbery
  • Bank Fraud
  • Pornography Cases
  • Mail Fraud/Theft from the Mail
  • Bribery of Public Officials
  • Crimes Committed on Federal Land
