Federal crimes are those which are made illegal by the United States Congress. Oftentimes, prosecution of these crimes could happen at both at the federal and the state level. Having counsel, such as Mr. Thompson, who has experience at the state and federal level, is necessary for anyone involved in a case that could be prosecuted in either jurisdiction.
The agencies that investigate offenses that become federal oftentimes include the:
- Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives
- Drug Enforcement Administration
- Federal Bureau of Investigations
- U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement
- Internal Revenue Service
- Secret Service
- Oregon Department of Justice
Federal crimes come in a variety of forms, from white collar offenses, to drug offenses, to firearm offenses, to internet offenses. However, for any offense to be prosecuted in federal court, it must affect interstate commerce.
Mr. Thompson has represented several individuals in federal court ranging from drug offenses, to firearm offenses, to internet crimes. If you or a loved one are contacted by any of the above agencies, you should contact Thompson Law, LLC right away. Let Mr. Thompson’s experience at the state and federal levels, including his knowledge of the federal sentencing guidelines, work for you.
