The federal criminal process is an overwhelming experience for anyone who has become the target of a federal criminal investigation. The United States Sentencing Commission’s 2010 Sourcebook of Federal Sentencing Statistics indicates 96.8% of all federal criminal prosecutions in the nation ended in guilty pleas in 2010. Only 3.2% of the cases proceeded to trial. The federal government has immense resources at its disposal in prosecuting its select number of cases, and can bring those resources to bear in building a criminal case against you. The investigating agencies of the federal government include the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Internal Revenue Service, the United States Marshalls Service, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
