Common Federal Crimes
Unlike a criminal offense that is prosecuted at the state level, a federal criminal offense is tried in federal court and also an U.S. prosecution lawyer will seek damages and charges. It is to your advantage to deal with a lawyer who has a thorough understanding of the government legislations associated with these instances. When you work with Frank Schwartz, P.A., you not only work with an experienced former prosecutor, also, you work with an attorney that has experience practicing in the highest court in the United States – the Supreme Court of the United States.

Charges for federal crimes can be much harsher than the penalties if convicted from a state crime. For example, if you were charged with the possession of cocaine, the federal charges can result in five years in prison. On the other hand, a state charge can result typically in a probationary sentence. Additionally, when it comes to federal crimes, double jeopardy is ruled out. Whereas, individuals can be penalized by both the State of Florida and the U.S. Government for the same criminal activity.
