Sometimes a seemingly innocent mistake can produce a ripple effect that ultimately results in long-lasting consequences that were never imagined. And when that mistake occurs in being prosecuted for a federal offense, it may mean that freedom is sacrificed — many years of freedom are put in jeopardy. A person accused of committing a federal crime could face a lengthy sentence; a wife could be separated from her husband; children can grow up without a parent; aging parents may never get to hold or see their child again; a family business may be lost.
The federal government is an imposing entity, especially when they have their sights set on you. It is crucial to avoid mistakes and missteps along the way if you are targeted or arrested for federal offense. That is what the information in my book, When the Feds Come Knocking, The Essential Guide to Fighting Federal Charges is all about: making wise choices and smart decisions about your future.
