Federal Criminal Law

Federal criminal charges are serious. Unlike State crimes in North Carolina, these crimes are handled differently. Federal criminal law follows a separate court system and different rules and procedures. Moreover, federal crimes tend to result in more severe punishments, including higher fines and longer prison sentences.

Crimes involving other states or labeled as federal crimes are prosecuted in federal court. The punishment is also determined in federal court. This is why you need an experienced federal lawyer to represent you and your case.

  • Drug Offenses

    There are different types of federal drug offenses. Possession, selling, manufacturing, and drug trafficking are all illegal under federal law. Simple possession or the sale of a drug is usually dealt with under North Carolina law, but the quantity or movement over state lines can make it a federal drug offense.

    In these scenarios, prosecutors are more likely to push for a federal drug offense due to the severity of the crime. Even first-time offenders facing a federal drug offense can be sentenced to a mandatory jail sentence of 20 years. As a result, it's important to work with someone who is highly experienced in federal criminal law. 

  • Gun Offenses 

    All states have their own gun laws, and North Carolina is no different. There are two federal gun offenses that are heavily prosecuted.

    One type of federal gun offense is when a felon is found in possession of a firearm and/or gun ammunition. The other type of federal gun offense involves the possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

    For either type of federal gun offense, judges are required to impose a mandatory minimum sentence. However, the minimum length of these sentences differs according to the different types of gun crimes, but they can be as long as a 30-year minimum sentence.  

    If you are facing a federal gun offense, you need a highly experienced criminal attorney to represent your case, call the Jeffers Law Firm.
