The Stakes are High: Understanding the Consequences of a Federal Investigation

From Witness to Target: Potential Exposure & Consequences of a Federal Investigation

Caustic chemicals in everyday life may be concerning, but when they are used to injure someone, it becomes a criminal act that could lead to conviction and imprisonment. However, being caught up in a Federal investigation can be just as dangerous. The Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) and other agencies are empowered to investigate and prosecute individuals and organizations for a wide range of crimes. Here’s what you need to know.


You don’t have to be a target to be caught up in a Federal investigation. As a witness, you may be asked to provide information that law enforcement believes may be relevant in a criminal investigation. But even as a witness, your words are not protected without a proffer agreement, and you could be charged with Lying to a Federal Agent and Obstruction of Justice, which carries a penalty of up to five years in a Federal penitentiary.


If you are a person of interest in a Federal criminal investigation, it means that law enforcement believes you may have been involved in a crime in some way. Even if they tell you that you’re not in trouble, you should be wary. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a criminal proceeding, so it’s crucial to seek legal counsel before speaking to law enforcement.


As a subject of a Federal criminal investigation, your conduct is within the scope of a Grand Jury’s investigation. You may be called to testify before a federal Grand Jury, but by definition, a person of interest is different than a subject. It’s important to seek the advice and protection of legal counsel in either case.


If you are a target of a Federal criminal investigation, it means that the prosecutor or Grand Jury has substantial evidence linking you to the commission of a crime. You could face serious charges, and the prosecutor believes you are a putative defendant. If you receive a warning before testifying before the Grand Jury, it’s essential to consult with a criminal attorney.


If the FBI has issued a warrant for your arrest, it means that a determination has been made that there is enough evidence to allow the US Attorney’s Office to move forward with felony criminal charges against you. It’s critical to exercise your rights and protect your liberty, career, and family. False statements, admissions, or denials can lead to strengthening an existing criminal case or criminal liability.

Contact the experienced attorneys at Spodek Law Group for advice and legal counsel. They have the knowledge and expertise to help you navigate a Federal criminal investigation, protect your rights, and achieve the best possible outcome. Don’t wait; contact them today.

Understanding Federal Subpoenas: How the Government Can Force You to Appear

Being Served with a Federal Subpoena

If you are served with a Federal subpoena, it means that the government is demanding that you appear before a Grand Jury, a court, or an administrative body to provide testimony or documents. You have a legal obligation to comply with a subpoena, but you also have the right to seek legal counsel to protect your interests.

Federal Arrest Warrant: What it Means & Your Next Steps

If the FBI has already issued an arrest warrant against you, it’s likely that you’ve been indicted by the Grand Jury, and there’s enough evidence to charge you with a crime. If the FBI apprehends you, they will take you into custody and present you before a judge who will set bail. It’s crucial to retain an experienced criminal defense attorney to represent you and fight the charges against you.

The Consequences of Lying to Federal Agents and Obstruction of Justice

It’s never a good idea to lie to a Federal agent or obstruct justice in any way. Even if you’re not the target of an investigation, lying to Federal agents can result in criminal charges, and you could face up to five years in a Federal penitentiary. It’s essential to seek legal counsel and exercise your right to remain silent.

The consequences of a Federal investigation can be severe, and it’s crucial to protect your rights and interests. Whether you’re a witness, person of interest, subject, target, or facing an arrest warrant, it’s essential to seek the advice of experienced attorneys at Spodek Law Group. They have the expertise and knowledge to guide you through the complex legal process, protect your interests, and achieve the best possible outcome for your case. Don’t wait; contact them today for a consultation.
