Being charged with a Federal offense is an extremely serious matter. The Federal government has unlimited resources with which to investigate and prosecute a person who it thinks has run afoul of a Federal statute. In many cases, the Federal government has spent months (or even years) investigating and amassing criminal charges before it arrests the person under investigation.
The consequences of being convicted of a Federal crime can be severe; long prison sentences and very high fines are not uncommon. And, to make matters worse, since the Federal system does not offer the chance for parole, a person convicted of a Federal crime and sentenced to Federal prison can expect to serve around 85% of that sentence.
Even if the person convicted of a Federal crime is placed on Federal probation, he/she will be under Federal supervision for a determinate period of time and be forced to give up many of the freedoms that we all take for granted.
So, as you can see, it is imperative that a person under Federal investigation or charged with a Federal crime hires an experienced, aggressive criminal defense attorney to represent and defend him/her. Drew Prisner is just such an attorney.
