Bank robbery and its penalties


Federal investigators handle a wide variety of crimes. Amongst those offenses is bank robbery. Bank robbery and attempted bank robbery are taken extremely seriously by the federal government, and a criminal conviction for such a crime could land an individual in prison for up to 20 years. This lengthy sentence, in addition to imposed fines, can really take a toll on an individual's life, making it extremely difficult for the person to get it back on track.

The importance of proper representation in federal crimes


A few weeks ago on the blog we discussed federal kidnapping charges and their potential penalties. Unfortunately, the law in this area, like much of the federal penal code, is complicated. Therefore, some Californians may find themselves facing kidnapping allegations without even knowing that they have done anything wrong. For example, a non-custodial parent may take a child across state lines, not knowing that he or she needs permission to do so. In this instance, the non-custodial parent may be facing significant penalties, including prison and the loss of access to his or her child.

California man arrested attempting to join terrorist group


Some federal charges are significantly more disturbing than others. In fact, in today's political environment, probably one of the most troubling federal charges a person can face is a federal terrorism charge.

While the website has long-been a source of controversy, it was reported that Moore and a business associate were just recently indicted for multiple federal crimes in a California federal court that are related to the now notorious website.

Feds crack down on human sex trafficking network


In recent years the federal government has placed new efforts on targeting individuals that are believed to be involved in human sex trafficking. Generally speaking human sex trafficking is defined as a form of slavery which involves the sexual exploitation of people for profits, usually through prostitution. Due to an increase in concern among various state legislatures over these issues there is currently a patchwork of state and federal laws that address the crime of human trafficking.
