Federal Sex Offenses
Some sex offenses that are illegal under Michigan law are also illegal under Federal law. The penalties are harsher in federal court and the rules of evidence are less favorable for defendants, therefore, it is not uncommon to see local police turn sex crime cases over to federal prosecution. This is especially common in Internet sex crimes and child pornography cases.
At Kronzek & Cronkright, we are a statewide Michigan law practice that focuses on sex crimes, including state and federal cases. We understand the implications of federal prosecution and can help protect your interests.
Unlike the state, Federal prosecutors are under no obligation to provide a police report or witness statements to you or your defense lawyer. For this reason, it's important to hire a law firm that has legal defense team with capability of conducting its own investigation on your behalf. You wouldn't want to be clueless about what a witness against you is going to say in court.
Our legal defense team is highly skilled at investigating, analyzing and neutralizing the evidence against you. Based on the evidence the federal government has, we will determine what we need to do to counteract it. Our attorneys use computer and network expert witnesses, to bring a high level of technical sophistication to your defense. It's critical that you have a strong, tough, savvy attorney on your side when defending against internet sex crimes in federal court.
