The Los Angeles County sheriff has responded angrily to the news that several
Los Angeles prison guards are under federal investigation. The investigation
centers on allegations that inmates have been mistreated. Volunteers who
help at the prisons and jails have stated that they witnessed guards beating
the prisoners. Sheriff L.B. wants to improve the way that inmates are
treated, but he does not believe that a federal investigation is the way
to do this.
Being under a federal investigation is far more serious than an investigation
by state or local police. A
federal crime is any offense against the United States, including:
tax evasion,white collar crimes,
wire fraud, and more.
If you have been accused of a federal crime, you could be up against the
Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Internal Revenue Service, or the
Drug Enforcement Agency. There organizations have far more resources and
manpower than local police and therefore you will need a skilled Los Angeles
federal crimes attorney from our firm to help defend you against these agencies.
Contact a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney from our firm so we can review your case and ascertain what the best legal
option is for you.
