Offenses on Federal Land Results in Federal Criminal Charges

Many people do not realize that crimes of any kind committed on federal land may result in federal criminal charges. For residents and visitors to Arizona, that means that if you are stopped for DUI at the Hoover Dam or arrested for marijuana possession at Lake Havasu or at Grand Canyon National Park, you need a criminal defense attorney who knows the federal system.


Many lawyers are experienced at handling cases in state court, however if charges are brought in federal court it is imperative that you have a attorney that is familiar with federal laws, the rules of evidence, as well as the Federal Sentencing Act and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines. The Arizona law firm of Michael E. Ziton, P.C. & Associates has handled numerous federal prosecutions. In each case, we make every effort to prevent federal charges from being filed and have significant experience negotiating with federal prosecutors.
Understanding Federal Criminal Charges

The federal sentencing system is very complicated. In 1984 the Congress passed the Federal Sentencing Act, which provided a complicated set of formulas resulting in a sentencing guideline for the United States District Court when faced with a defendant who has either pled guilty or been found guilty at trial.
