    In order to respond to your question, more information is necessary. For example, under the Sentencing Guidelines, money laundering's offense level depends on numerous factors. The same is true for wire fraud. Additionally, the statute with which you have been charged may have a mandatory minimum sentence. You should hire a competent federal criminal defense attorney. If you cannot afford one, the court will appoint one for you. Only in speaking with your attorney and sharing all of the...

    Any attorney assigned to represent you will not be permitted in the Grand Jury room to hear your testimony. The only way the attorney will know what you testified to is if you tell him or her. Why would you quit your job? There is no reason to do so. Additionally, if you have information that your boss may have broken the law, the same attorney who represents your boss cannot possibly represent you due to the inherent and actual conflict of interest. You should hire independent legal...

    If you have only been "charged," but not "convicted" - no guilty plea or finding of guilt - then a truthful answer to the question is "no" it would seem.

    Your question is much too general. Your rights, I'm presuming you are referring to your 5th Amendment rights described by Miranda. Miranda comes in when law enforcement questions someone in custody. If your charges could result in jail, an attorney should be appointed to represent you.

    I agree with the sentiments expressed above. Public defenders, for the most part, are knowledgeable and are good at what they do. Because of budgetary constraints, they are also often overworked. Research private criminal defense counsel carefully and check out the cost. If you think you can legitimately afford private counsel, do so. If you think you can legitimately afford private counsel, you likely will not qualify for a public defender. There is no guarantee regarding results by...

  7. What can I do legally to get my sons personal property from his girlfriend? He passed in Dec 2012,

    You should contact an attorney in the location your son and his girlfriend lived in. Additionally, this may be a law enforcement matter as it appears from your posting the girlfriend may have committed a crime by filing taxes and/or keeping the refund. If your son had a will, of course, these actions may be addressed in that document. I truly wish you the best.

    "Can" the case be taken to trial...yes. If the preliminary hearing has not occurred yet, there may well be more evidence connecting your brother to the crime.

    If you entered into a written guilty plea, you may have waived certain rights to appeal including the right to appeal your sentence. If there is no written plea agreement you can probably appeal. As the other posters have indicated, it is an uphill battle as judges are given broad discretion regarding sentencing.

    There is no "federal license." Attorneys are licensed by various state bar associations. An attorney, however, needs to be admitted to practice in the federal jurisdiction where the case is in order to practice in that court. I question how an criminal attorney has federal case experience but "no federal license." Perhaps the attorney is admitted in another federal jurisdiction but not the jurisdiction of your case?
