Getting caught in the crosshairs of a federal attempt crime can be a frightening and confusing experience for anyone. An individual might be adamant that they didn’t commit any wrongdoing, yet under federal law, a strong defense can be found in proving the person in question never actually committed the crime. In such cases, the individual can be charged with an attempt, which carries the same penalties as the actual crime when completed.
In federal law, there are two primary elements to criminal attempt. To secure a conviction against a defendant, Department of Justice (DOJ) prosecutors must successfully prove both of these elements. They include:
One crucial aspect to understand is that the theory of intent is subjective. This can be advantageous for the defense, as the prosecution is obligated to prove that the defendant committed the attempt with intent and that they were capable of committing the offense if they had not been interrupted. Consequently, it’s often possible for a defense attorney to argue against the charge of criminal attempt by demonstrating that the substantial step would not have sufficed to commit the actual offense.
Every state in the United States, including New Jersey, has statutes relating to the crime of attempt. Some of these statutes include:
|Attempt to Commit Murder or Manslaughter||A person convicted of this offense may face 20 years in prison or a fine, or both, or seven years in prison or a fine, or both, respectively|
|Attempt to Commit Fraud||This statute encompasses white-collar crimes such as wire fraud, bank fraud, mail fraud, healthcare fraud, securities, and commodities fraud|
|Attempt to Commit a Drug Crime||This offense pertains to all attempted drug offenses involving illicit drugs and prescription drugs|
|Attempt to Evade or Defeat Tax||Attempting to commit federal tax evasion or defeat a federal tax obligation is classified as a felony and carries a fine of $100,000 or $500,000 if a corporation is convicted, or a prison sentence of five years, or both|
|Attempt to Bribe Public Officials and Witnesses||This offense prosecutes not only those who attempt to give bribes but also those who seek or demand a gift or payment|
Potential defenses in a federal attempt crimes case include a variety of arguments. These charges are immensely serious, so if you have been arrested and charged with criminal attempt, it is imperative that you retain a criminal defense attorney experienced in federal crimes. The following are potential defenses that can be employed:
If you are facing charges of an attempt crime, take it very seriously. This is a federal crime that carries severe penalties. It’s absolutely crucial to consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible to build a robust defense for your case.
