Charged With A Federal Crime? Get Qualified Help Promptly.

One of the most common ways a state crime becomes a federal crime is when the alleged criminal activity crossed state borders, or took place in multiple states. When a state crime becomes a federal crime, the stakes increase dramatically. Not only are the consequences more severe in terms of fines and prison time, but the legal process also becomes more complicated, which makes it more expensive.

If you are facing criminal charges, the best thing you can do to defend yourself is to get an attorney who is not only familiar with federal case proceedings, but also confident enough to defend against federal charges. We at Kolbeck Law Office have the experience necessary to protect you from both federal and state criminal charges.

An Aggressive South Dakotan Lawyer

A common form of federal crime is trafficking. It might be legal to purchase marijuana in Colorado, but the problem comes when you carry it across state lines into a state that has not legalized the drug. This is a perfect example of when an honest mistake becomes a federal crime.

A lot of our clients never intended to traffic any drugs, as they were just for personal use. Unfortunately, federal charges only look at the evidence available, which can make things worse for you. We know how to fight these charges. Our primary goal is always to get the charges dropped, but if that is not a reachable goal, we then strive to reduce the sentencing as much as possible.
