Federal criminal charges are extremely serious and challenging to defend. Attorney Christopher Keyser is a Minnesota Federal Crimes Defense Lawyer representing the accused in federal court where there is no Constitutional right to a trial. State court differs from federal court in many respects, such as the federal "trial tax" where defendants are punished more severely if they take a case to trial and are convicted. In contrast, plea negotiations in state court typically improve closer to the day of trial. Another contrast is the Federal Sentencing Guidelines which are far more complex and harsh than Minnesota's state sentencing guidelines.
