Federal Criminal Defense - Federal criminal cases are often more sophisticated crimes and often involve a longer period of government investigation. For example, state law enforcement officers will often initiate an arrest after a single drug purchase, and state prosecutors will approve charges after a single drug purchase. While federal law enforcement agencies, such as the DEA or Health and Human Services will usually conduct a more extensive investigation.
Complex financial crimes, such as bank fraud, and health care related frauds, such as those committed against the Medicare or Medicaid programs are almost exclusively charged as federal offenses. The law office of MCR is experienced in representing individuals charged with complex financial crimes and recently represented a defendant in a bank fraud scheme of more than $74 million.
Individuals charged with Bank Fraud are charged under 18 U.S.C § 1344 - Bank fraud.
