Federal Crime Penalties

Penalties in the Federal court system tend to be harsher and the legal complexities more involved. If you are convicted in Federal Court, you may face a penalty to include mandatory fines and being placed on Federal probation. Keep in mind the Federal Government has considerable resources and is more zealous in prosecuting offenses.

Colorado law is utilized by the Federal Government and is prosecuted by the local Judge Advocate General office, commonly known as JAG.  A JAG officer is a military officer who is assigned to prosecute Federal law under the local jurisdiction.

Federal court convictions and dismissals differ from Colorado state law in that there is no provision for sealing or expunging of Federal criminal records. It is important to have a strong advocate that knows the Federal system and can fight on your behalf.

If you or someone you care about has been charged with a federal crime, contact an experienced Colorado criminal defense attorney who is familiar with this type of case.
