In federal criminal cases, it is not uncommon for what is known as a “target letter” to be sent out during the course of the investigation. These are sent by federal prosecutors to those who are alleged to have specific knowledge about crimes and who may be scheduled to appear before a federal Grand Jury or face criminal indictment themselves. For the recipient, this means that they are the “target” of a Grand Jury investigation. If you have received this letter, it is a notification that the prosecutor has enough evidence against you to link you to a federal crime. You need a lawyer.
Do not take this letter lightly. It is extremely important that you do not hesitate to retain experienced counsel. Attorney Geoffrey Upshaw has handled multiple “target” investigations. You can be confident knowing that your legal rights are protected.
