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, espionage, kidnapping, bank fraud, money laundering, drug trafficking, 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.
