Roberts Law Office attorneys represents clients charged with felony and misdemeanor offenses in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina, which is made up of 21 counties in the eastern part of North Carolina. A federal conviction has serious consequences to a person’s life and those who have been charged should retain a lawyer experienced in charges brought by the federal government. The various court procedures and rules of evidence can differ in federal court from those in North Carolina’s state courts. Further, federal crimes often carry more severe and mandatory penalties upon conviction, with less options for probation and parole, than the equivalent state crime.

When Crimes May Be Charged as a Federal Offense:

Many crimes are illegal under both federal and state law, however, it’s not likely you obtain both federal and state charges for the same crime. Usually, you are charged for an alleged crime either under state law or federal law. There are certain factors that can lead to the charges being filed under federal law, including:

  • Violation of a Federal Statute
  • Committing the Crime on Federal Property (for example, federal building, military base, or national park)
  • Committing Crimes while Crossing State Lines
  • Being Investigated by Federal Agency (for example, FBI, IRS, or DEA)
