Arlington Federal Criminal Lawyers

If you have been charged with a federal crime in Arlington, Texas, hiring an experienced federal criminal defense attorney is crucial to protecting your rights and future. Federal crimes carry severe penalties, so having strong legal counsel on your side can make all the difference.

This article provides an overview of federal criminal law in Arlington and how a knowledgeable lawyer can defend your case. We’ll discuss common federal charges, sentencing guidelines, legal strategies, and more. With the right attorney, you may be able to get charges reduced or even dismissed.

Common Federal Crimes in Arlington

Some of the most common federal charges filed in Arlington include:

  • Drug crimes – Drug trafficking, distribution, manufacturing, and possession charges make up a large portion of federal cases. Even minor marijuana possession can lead to federal prosecution.
  • White collar crimes – Fraud, embezzlement, money laundering, tax evasion, and other financial crimes often end up in federal court.
  • Firearms offenses – Charges like illegal firearm sales and possession, gun trafficking, and felon in possession of a firearm are prosecuted federally.
  • Immigration violations – Illegal re-entry after deportation, alien smuggling, and false citizenship claims fall under federal jurisdiction.
  • Child pornography – Distribution, receipt, and possession of child pornography are serious federal felonies.

These are just a few examples – virtually any crime crossing state lines or occurring on federal land or property can be charged federally. Even local cases are sometimes picked up for federal prosecution.

Penalties for Federal Convictions

A federal conviction comes with severe mandatory minimum sentences and steep fines. For example:

  • Drug trafficking over 500g of cocaine carries a 10 year mandatory minimum sentence[1].
  • Felon in possession of a firearm results in up to 10 years in prison[2].
  • Major fraud over $1 million leads to up to 30 years behind bars[3].
  • Child pornography convictions bring 5-20 years per offense[4].

And these are just for first time offenders with no criminal history. Penalties escalate sharply for repeat offenders. That’s why skilled legal help is so important when facing federal charges.

Sentencing Guidelines

Federal sentences are largely determined by the United States Sentencing Guidelines. These guidelines provide sentencing ranges based on:

  • The type and severity of the offense
  • The defendant’s criminal history
  • Mitigating and aggravating factors

While judges have some discretion, they are still bound by mandatory minimums and can only depart from guidelines in limited circumstances. This is why negotiating plea agreements is critical.

An experienced lawyer will thoroughly analyze the guidelines applicable to your case. They will identify any grounds for downward departures or variances from standard sentencing. This can potentially reduce your sentence by months or even years compared to going it alone against seasoned federal prosecutors.
