Fraud in Violation of the Racketeering and Organized Crime Act
In United States of America v. Ryan D., the United States charged over a dozen people who worked at the Hanford Nuclear Site with major fraud against the United States government for allegedly conspiring with each other to charge the government for time which was not actually worked. During the course of plea negotiations ten different people entered into guilty pleas. My client, Perry H., refused to enter into any bargain. The government produced over three million pages of documents. A jury trial was held which lasted over four weeks. The jury came back and found Perry H. not guilty on all counts.
Are You Accused of Committing a Federal Drug Crime?
One of the most common offenses that can be considered a federal crime are those related to drug crimes. While it is true that generally larger issues – such as wide scale drug trafficking – attract federal attention, there is nothing to stop the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) or the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) from getting involved in lesser offenses. This means that you could be challenging the power of the FBI just for selling or possessing an illicit substance, such as several ounces of cocaine. If you have been charged with a federal drug crime, you cannot afford to wait to get legal representation.
