Investigated by the FBI and prosecuted in federal courts, federal criminal charges are serious accusations that typically carry the crippling threat of prison time, expensive fines or even death. What can be just as daunting is the fact that federal law and the ensuing legal process can be complicated, which can make it that much harder for an individual to defend him/herself and minimize the possibility of conviction.
