Kentucky Criminal Lawyer Scott J. Barton

Federal Criminal Lawyer in Louisville, Kentucky

While many criminal offenses are tried in Kentucky Superior Court, some crimes are a violation of Federal law. These offenses are prosecuted by the United States government and, as a result, have the full force of a number of Federal agencies supporting the prosecution. Agencies conducting investigations, undercover operations, and sting operations on behalf of the government include:
  • Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)
  • Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA)
  • Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF)
  • Internal Revenue Service (IRS)
  • Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)
  • Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)
  • United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)
Any crime that occurs on Federal property can be charged as a Federal crime. In addition, white collar crimes, cybercrimes, and drug crimes are among the criminal offenses most frequently prosecuted as Federal crimes. Internet sex crimes such as child pornography and online solicitation of a minor are also vigorously prosecuted in Federal court. Federal criminal charges are serious, with conviction leading to stringent sentencing in Federal prison, often without the possibility of parole. If you are investigated for a Federal crime, it is advisable to seek legal counsel from an attorney and defense team experienced at handling Federal cases. The evidence against you is backed by lengthy investigations that may include wiretapping and other surveillance conducted by agents. Finding a Federal criminal attorney with the resources to build a defense against charges is crucial to your case.
