Understanding Federal Criminal Defense

Written by Criminal defense Lawyers on . Posted in Criminal Defense Articles

Federal Criminal Defense Lawyers .The judicial process in a federal  criminal case is different  from a state case in many ways. At the commencement of a federal criminal case, the principal players are the U.S. attorney (the prosecutor) and the grand jury. The U.S. attorney represents the United States in most court proceedings, including all federal criminal prosecutions. The grand jury will then review evidence presented by the U.S. attorney and decide whether there is substantial evidence to require a defendant to stand trial for their federal criminal charge.

If you are arrested for a federal criminal charge a pretrial services or probation officer of the court will interview you  and conduct an investigation of your  background. This information obtained by the pretrial services or probation office will be used to help a judge decide whether to release you  into the community before trial for your federal criminal charges, and whether or not to determine conditions for your release.

The standard of proof in a criminal trial is “beyond a reasonable doubt,” which means the evidence must be so strong that there is no reasonable doubt that you committed this crime.

At an initial appearance, a judge advises you of the charges filed, considers whether you should be held in jail until trial, and determines whether there is probable cause to believe that a criminal  offense has been committed and that you have has committed it.   Defendants released into the community before trial may be required to comply with certain restrictions . These restrictions may include home confinement or drug testing. You may be asked to make periodic reports to a pretrial services officer to ensure appearance at trial.

If you are a law-abiding citizen, your chances of being arrested are slight. It is important, though, that you know “Your Rights If Arrested.” An informed and alert  individual is the best guarantee that your rights will be upheld during a criminal or DUI arrest.Always contact a criminal defense lawyer to protect your legal rights.A criminal defense lawyer is an  attorney who specializes in the defense of individuals and companies charged with criminal conduct.

The basic rights of a citizen under arrest are stated in the Fifth, Sixth and Eighth Amendments of the “Bill of Rights” of the United States Constitution.

  • “No person . . . shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty or property, without due process of law . . .” (Fifth Amendment).
  • “In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury . . . and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor; and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense.” (Sixth Amendment).
  • “Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor shall cruel and unusual punishments be inflicted.” (Eighth Amendment).

Since the adoption of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution, the states have also had to guarantee these rights. This amendment provides: “No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of the citizens of the United States . . .”

Many of the provisions found in the “Bill of Rights” of the U.S. Constitution also appear in the “Bill of Rights” of the Illinois Constitution. The following discussion is based upon both constitutions and upon other laws governing the citizens of this state.

WHO CAN MAKE  A CRIMINAL ARREST:

Any law enforcement officer such as a policeman, sheriff, deputy sheriff or state trooper can make a lawful arrest. The arrest may be made with a warrant or, under certain circumstances, without a warrant. In any circumstance it is important to have an experienced criminal defense attoney on your side.

A warrant is an order describing the person to be arrested and the charge made; it is issued by a magistrate or judge upon the complaint of someone. It directs all law enforcement officers of the state or, in some cases, authorizes a private person by name to arrest the person named in the complaint. The arrested person is to be brought before the Court issuing the warrant or, if that is not possible, before the most accessible Court in the same county.
