Federal Criminal Process

  • The Investigation - Most federal investigations start with your usual agencies: the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), and Homeland Security Investigations (HSI). These agencies conduct their investigations usually without the subject’s knowledge. They will conduct surveillance, execute wiretaps, and even interview witnesses. If you are the target of an investigation, it is extremely important to be represented an attorney. You attorney will help you understand the implications of you speaking with law enforcement agencies and can help guide you through the process.
  • The Charge - Once the investigation has rendered sufficient facts, the prosecutor will decide whether to bring charges against a business or individual. In this step of the criminal process, the prosecutor will make the case to a secret grand jury who will then vote. If the grand jury votes to render an indictment, the individual can elect to hire an attorney.
