FEDERAL COURT CRIMINAL DEFENSE: FELONY CASES

At Bilecki Law Group, We believe every service member has earned their right to an aggressive defense on their day in court. We specialize in taking the fight to the prosecution and winning cases that others said were unwinnable.

Have You Been Accused of a Felony Crime by the Federal Government?

A hard-hitting legal defense is all that stands between you and the worst case scenario.
Accusations that you or someone you love will be tried in federal court for a felony charge have turned your life upside down. The seriousness of the charges and the publicity your case could generate could send you and your family reeling into a dark place for years to come. How you handle this situation could very likely be the most important decision you’ll ever make. Felony cases which warrant federal prosecution are often some of the largest and most serious cases on the docket. They are meticulously prepared by federal prosecutors and some of the brightest legal minds in the country will be working around the clock to convict you. And if you are convicted, you stand to lose everything:
  • You could lose your freedom in a heartbeat. Most felony offenses under federal jurisdiction carry with them decades to life in prison.
  • Fines could ravage your finances and leave your entire family picking through the rubble of financial ruin. You could be in debt to the feds for decades.
  • These cases can and do get picked up by the media all the time. You and your family could have your names dragged through the dirt for weeks and even months.
Many defendants do not recover from a conviction of a felony offense. Which is why you must fight back against these charges. Contact Bilecki Law GroupTODAY for a confidential consultation.

Felony Crimes under Federal Jurisdiction: What Should I Know?

When a person is accused of a felony crime, he or she will be subject to either state or federal courts. Most criminal offenses fall under state court jurisdiction. However, if the offense in question violates federal laws passed by Congress, you may find yourself fighting in federal courts, against highly trained and experienced federal prosecutors.
Federal courts rarely hear anything but the most serious criminal cases. Some of the circumstances that could give rise to federal jurisdiction include:
  • When the U.S. is a victim of the crime
  • Bankruptcy charges
  • When amounts exceed a certain threshold ($75,000+)
  • When an offense involves interstate commerce
  • Violations of the U.S. constitution
  • Maritime law
  •  The current administration is going after drug offenders hard and fast. This zero tolerance policy could land you in jail for years without proper legal representation.

Frequently Asked Questions About Drug Offenses

Expect to be hit hard in your court-martial. Much like the Obama administration went after service members accused of sexual assault with a zeal we’ve never seen before, the Trump administration is looking to go after drug offenders with the same kind of determination.

This will only lead to harsher sentencing and more aggressive tactics by prosecutors. This is why it’s more important than ever that you have court martial lawyers with a proven record for winning drug cases in the military.

The War on Drugs is ongoing, and command wants to be seen as aggressively tackling this problem to show they are taking a stand on preserving good order and discipline. The more service members that get prosecuted under their watch, the tougher they look to their superiors. And the likelier it is they’ll get promoted. Command is more than okay with your very public hanging. They need some red meat to throw at the public now and then to confirm that they’re winning the “War on Drugs.”
Not all drug use is wrongful. The lawful use of prescription drugs is an obvious example. The ingestion of a substance a person believes is powdered sugar, but is actually cocaine, for example, would not be wrongful. And these are just two examples we’ve seen in court cases around the world. In a similar vein, recent DEA sting operations resulted in the indictment of a number of active duty and formerly active duty service members for drug trafficking charges. These sting operations involve casting a large net that captures innocent people, as well as actual street-level dealers and traffickers. Regardless of the charges brought against you, and no matter how much evidence the military says they have on you, we can help. Bilecki Law Group defends service members accused of the full spectrum of drug offenses. From relatively minor positive urinalysis charges to international drug trafficking, we have the experience, street smarts and tenacity to take on drug offenses at all levels.
