Criminal Defense Attorneys For Government Contractors
At our law firm, we handle a wide variety of cases. Civilian contractors, civilian visitors, and even federal employees at military bases and other federal facilities who are charged with crimes are presented with charges within the jurisdiction of the United States District Court for the district in which the offense allegedly took place. If these charges are misdemeanors, then it falls to the federal magistrate court to adjudicate the offense. Federal magistrate courts are held on military bases and in federal facilities throughout the United States and are presided over by Federal Magistrate Judges. The charges can be from the United States Code, or they can be charged under the Assimilated Crimes Act, which makes State crimes chargeable federally. It is important if you find yourself in the position of being charged with a federal crime to find an attorney who is familiar with the procedures and practices unique to the federal system.
The charges may include the following:
- Possession of drugs (even marijuana or cannabis may be charged federally in Colorado)
- DUI or other jailable traffic offenses
- Assault or other potential crimes of violence
- Theft, shoplifting, or embezzlement
- Weapons crimes
- Trespassing, burglary, or other property crimes
In addition, these charges can have severe consequences for federal employees, federal contractors, and those with specific security clearances.
