Signs You Are Under Criminal Investigation
If you are being investigated by the state or federal government for a crime, you may not always know it. However, if one of the following occurs you should be concerned:
- A state or federal agent contacts you
- Your home is searched by state or federal agents
- Someone you have a work relationship with is under investigation
- You are subpoenaed to a grand jury hearing
- You receive a target letter notifying you that you are under investigation
If state or federal agents attempt to question you – even before charges have been filed – do not answer. You may be unknowingly guiding them to evidence or be admitting liability. This could end in serious charges, such as white collar crime charges, and penalties.
