A federal criminal case is made up of several extremely important moments, including your initial court appearance in front of a U.S. Magistrate Judge, a preliminary hearing or arraignment involving a grand jury, a detention hearing, pretrial motions, plea bargaining, trial and sentencing. Each of these steps comes with its own specific, exhaustive processes that can be handled only by a seasoned federal steroid criminal lawyer like J. Clark Baird.

The detention hearing portion of the federal criminal process is absolutely crucial, because if you lose the detention hearing you could remain incarcerated for a long period of time while you await trial. And if you are convicted at trial, you could immediately be remanded into serving your sentence, which means there is a possibility you could be deprived of your freedom from the moment you are arrested until the end of your sentence. An inexperienced lawyer may not fully comprehend the potential risks presented during a detention hearing, may not know the statutory factors the magistrate judge will consider in determining whether a defendant should be detained or released, and could make mistakes that may cost you your freedom as well as precious moments with your family.

The federal bail process differs greatly from state courts and rarely includes property or cash bond. Also, because the plea bargaining process involves the U.S. Attorney rather than a local prosecutor, it can be much more formal and complicated. And for some crimes, action may be taken against you that require forfeiture of your property. Criminal defense attorney Baird is exceptionally well-versed in the details of these and other potential hazards of the federal judicial process. His practice is designed to offer experienced legal advice to you throughout each juncture of the federal criminal justice system.

Federal sentences and penalties are generally longer and harsher than those involving state courts. It is important to remember there is no such thing as federal parole or shock probation. The federal sentencing guidelines for various crimes can vary widely based on the severity of your offense, your own criminal history, statutory minimums and other considerations. Baird understands all of the factors that go into calculating a federal sentence and will work hard to help you obtain the fairest and most minimal sentence possible.

Federal sentences include a period of supervised release. Supervised release includes reporting to a U.S. probation/parole officer. The activities and movements of a defendant can be severely restricted during this time period. Don’t let yourself be placed indefinitely under the thumb of a probation officer and have your every movement monitored. Let Steroid Lawyer J. Clark Baird help you minimize your supervised release.
