Aggressive Defense For Interstate Crime Charges
Interstate crimes can be prosecuted by the courts in the states involved as well as the federal court system. Interstate crimes are considered serious and can carry steep penalties and harsh sentences, including federal prison. If you have been accused of a crime that involved Texas and another state, you need to seek the counsel of an attorney who has successfully tried these types of cases in court. The laws pertaining to interstate crimes are specific and complex.
Acts That Constitute Interstate Crimes
Interstate crimes may be against a specific individual victim, such as kidnapping or domestic stalking, or charges could involve businesses or narcotics. If convicted, the charges and sentencing may be based on the offense, its severity and overall impact. It is extremely important to hire a defense attorney who understands the prosecution’s goals and can fight to keep charges out of the federal court system, if possible.
