Extortion can be a federal crime

It is a well-known fact that federal crimes are generally very serious matters. If you are charged with an offense of this nature, you could be faced with a lengthy and in-depth investigation, along with the possibility of serious penalties if convicted. However, as many of these crimes can be extremely complicated, it is often difficult for officers to unravel the situation and find the true perpetrator. This means that you could find yourself falsely accused in the meantime.

It can be hard to stay calm when you are being treated unfairly, but if you react aggressively, you could face further charges.
