How Do You Know If You've Been Charged With a Federal Crime?


If you are investigated for involvement in a federal crime, you will likely know. Agents will likely have questioned you or loved ones, possibly have searched your home or business, or even sent a target letter explicitly stating that you are the target of an investigation. Just because you are investigated, however, does not mean you have actually been charged with a federal criminal offense.

How To Find Out If You Have Been Charged With a Federal Crime

If you have been charged with a federal crime, it is in your best interests to know right away, so that you can begin to fight back with an experienced attorney on your side. In some cases, it may be very obvious that you have been charged with a federal offense. You may be arrested and held, or you (or your lawyer) could be told, usually through a letter, that you are being charged with an offense.

Sometimes, it isn’t precisely clear whether or not you have been charged with a criminal offense. Agents may show up at your house and question you. At this point, you may merely be a suspect, or could even just be questioned in connection with the investigation of another person. Agents may also come with a warrant, and search your home. While a search warrant likely demonstrates you are a suspect, and that a case against you is being built, it usually comes before formal charges. If you are searched or questioned, however, you should act fast to get in touch with a lawyer, who will then be able to keep track of the charges you might be up against.

No matter the specifics of your case, working with a lawyer will allow you to determine when you are up against charges, and what charges you are facing. Call our team now for a free initial case consultation and find out more about how our team can help you.
