Aggressive Defense against Federal Corruption Crime Charges in Knoxville

Several statutes under Title 18 of the United States Code address corruption. Corruption offenses are also prosecuted under the RICO Act (Racketeer Influences and Corrupt Organizations). Federal statutes used to prosecute corruption are sometimes ambiguous, which can lead to prosecution for acts that are not clearly criminal.

Some of the federal crimes that may be charged as corruption crimes are:

The FBI states that, "Public corruption poses a fundamental threat to our national security and way of life." They also state that, "The FBI is singularly situated to combat this corruption, with the skills and capabilities to run complex undercover operations and surveillance." Do not face an investigation or charges of corruption without an aggressive and knowledgeable Knoxville criminal defense attorney who will stand up to federal prosecutors and investigators and fight for your freedom.
