Some sex crimes are investigated by the FBI or other federal agencies and prosecuted in the United States District Courts, such as child pornography and internet sex crimes.
Building a defense in federal court is different from that in state court. The federal government brings fewer of these cases to trial, but they tend to be more serious and often easier to prosecute due to audio or video tape evidence or other strong evidence of guilt. Federal cases often involve multiple defendants further complicating the building of a strong defense.
Federal crimes carry very long prison sentences and are determined by the United States Sentencing Guidelines. An attorney with understanding of the Sentencing Guidelines and extensive experience working in federal court is absolutely essential to defending a federal case. If you have been accused of a sex crime in federal court, you need to immediately contact an attorney with experience in the federal system.
