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. I am Ryan Kolbeck, founder of the Kolbeck Law Office in Sioux Falls, SD. I have the experience necessary to protect you from both federal and state criminal charges.

The most common form of federal crime is drug conspiracy. The federal government typically takes cases that originate in state court and if the drug quantity is large enough the federal government files charges in federal court. The government uses many different ways to build a case, including the use of confidential informants or other witnesses who receive leniency for testifying.
