Federal Criminal Charges in Columbia
Child pornography internet crimes are among the most common types of federal cases we represent, as they frequently involve the transmission and distribution of files between computers in more than one state. It is often possible to defeat this type of charge by raising questions about whether the suspect can be proven to be the person who downloaded the files or whether the suspect may be the victim of a computer virus for example. We might also be able to resolve the case by demonstrating that your constitutional right against unreasonable search and seizure was violated.
Drug crimes are also frequently charged by federal law enforcement, such as trafficking across state lines or international borders, while we can also represent clients on charges including identity theft and various types of fraud including credit card fraud, wire fraud and mortgage fraud.
