Facing a federal criminal charge is just about the most dire situation anyone will ever find themself in. The government of the United States does not file criminal charges against an individual unless it has more than sufficient evidence to proceed to trial, to the point it believes it will prevail.

The feds also are well-funded with billions and billions of taxpayer dollars to pursue said charges. Our government will have teams of attorneys with virtually endless resources at its disposal when prosecuting a defendant.

Needless to say, federal criminal charges are not filed on a whim or capriciously. It takes an enormous amount of time and money to successfully prosecute a federal case and the U.S. government is always prepared for that battle.

It is critical to retain an attorney who has spend significant time in federal court. Bruce Harris is that attorney. So do not delay in calling our office if you are facing a federal charge, including:

  • Arson;

  • Economic espionage;
  • Exploitation of children;

  • Terrorism;


Of course, there are myriad other federal crimes with which you can be charged, and the aforementioned list is merely a brief sample of the more common types of cases being tried in federal courts throughout the country today.

There is an extremely wide-range of the types of charges that automatically fall under the jurisdiction of the federal government, many of which surprise most people. Typically, a federal crime is any crime that affects or has the potential to affect a person or entity beyond the boundaries of the state of Texas itself.

Most simply understood as federal crimes are any local violation of the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964. A violation of the Act that occurs in Wichita Falls would not be a local crime, but rather a federal one.
