East Hartford Federal Crime Lawyers
Connecticut Defense Attorneys
Defendants have many rights in the state judicial system that may not be afforded to federal criminal defendants, such as the right to bail/bond. Many times, state prosecutors will use the threat of transferring a state case to federal authorities as a bargaining chip in plea negotiations. If you have been charged for a serious crime in the federal court system, contact Woolf & Macci, LLC, Attorneys at Law to discuss your case. We have been serving clients throughout Connecticut for over 15 years and are committed to protecting our clients’ rights.

Federal Sentencing Guidelines
In the federal court system, there are Federal Sentencing Guidelines that set forth minimum and maximum sentences to be imposed for federal crimes. While they are no longer binding upon federal judges, they may use their discretion in complying with the Guidelines. However, judges do look to them at the time of position of sentencing. The level of offense and prior criminal history determine the sentence under the Federal Sentence Guidelines. Individuals facing charges for a crime (or similar crime) which they have previously been convicted are considered second or subsequent offenders. Second offenders may face the maximum penalty for the federal crime for which they are convicted.
If you have been arrested or are under investigation for a federal crime, contact our criminal defense Attorney at Woolf & Macci, LLC, Attorneys at Law.
