Steps In a Government Investigation
Because every federal criminal case is unique, every government investigation is handled differently. During the investigation process, friends and family may be questioned, agents may show up at your front door, you may receive a target letter, or agents may come to your house with a search warrant. If you have reason to believe that you are under investigation, contact Grabel & Associates as soon as possible. We will advise you of the best steps to take in your case to help you avoid self-incrimination, and get you on track to achieving the best outcome possible.
Federal agents will try to ask you questions throughout the investigative process in an attempt to gather evidence. You have the right to remain silent if they ask you questions about your involvement in a crime, and should always contact your lawyer before saying or doing anything else related to the case. Your defense lawyer will help you understand the process and your legal rights, protecting you throughout every stage of the investigation.
How to See the Evidence Against You During a Government Investigation
If you’re being investigated for a federal offense but have not yet been charged, you typically are not allowed to view the evidence against you. It may be possible for your lawyer to obtain early access to the evidence, but that depends on the unique details of your case. A member of the Grabel & Associates team will reach out to the federal prosecutor and attempt to grant you access to government’s evidence against you, if it will help your defense. Often, these requests are only granted if the individual being investigated is interested in working out a plea. Later on, during discovery, your lawyer will get access to the prosecution’s case, and can then share with you more information about the charges you are facing. Speak with your attorney to learn more about the options available during the investigative stage of your case.
