FAQs: What You Need to Know about Criminal Cases in McKinney and Frisco
Q: What Is the Eastern District of Texas?
Frisco and McKinney are assigned to the Eastern District of Texas, one of four federal districts in Texas, and one of 95 federal districts nationwide. Headquarters of the Eastern District is Tyler, Texas. However, there are branches throughout Eastern Texas such as federal court houses Tyler (211 West Ferguson Street, Tyler, Texas 75702), Marshall (100 East Houston Street, Marshall, Texas 75670), Beaumont (300 Willow Street, Beaumont, Texas 77701), Texarkana (500 North State Line Avenue, Texarkana, Texas 75501), Sherman (101 East Pecan Street, Sherman, Texas 75090), and Lufkin (104 North Third Street, Lufkin, Texas 75901). Most investigations in Collin County and Denton County are assigned to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Plano, Texas.
Q: Why Is the FBI Investigating My Case?
Task of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is to monitor compliance with federal statutes and to enforce federal criminal statutes. Unlike police officers and district attorneys that both handle state law matters, the FBI and other federal law enforcement agencies (e.g. IRS, DEA, Homeland Security, Department of Justice) only have jurisdiction for federal law. Clearly, if the FBI is investigating you, you need to take this very serious, and contact FBI defense lawyers right away.
Q: What Are Examples of Federal Felonies?
Federal felonies are defined as criminal offenses that carry sentences of imprisonment for more than one year. Examples of commonly charged federal felonies for residents in Collin County and Denton County are:
- Federal Fraud (Mail Fraud, Wire Fraud, Bank Fraud, Tax Fraud, Securities Fraud, Healthcare Fraud, Medicare Fraud)
- Computer Crimes (Hacking, Sex Trafficking)
- Violent Crimes (Kidnapping, Bank Robbery)
- Identify Theft, Counterfeiting
- Money Laundering & Drug Offenses
- All Federal Conspiracy Charges
- Violations of the Controlled Substances Act
Q: What Are the Penalties in Federal Cases?
Many clients from Frisco and McKinney contact our firm because they are concerned of being prosecuted or convicted for a federal felony. Their fear is justified. Federal courts have the authority to severely punish individuals that pleaded guilty or were convicted on felony charges. If you find yourself exposed to felony charges, you should immediately contact experienced lawyers. We have not just avoided felony convictions, but also avoided felony charges to be brought in the first place in numerous instances. Further, most recently alone, attorney Nick Oberheiden obtained probation for clients that were charged with various felonies, including but not limited to healthcare fraud, Medicare Fraud, and computer crimes.

The answer is simple: you should consult with a lawyer at the very first sign of something not being right, the very first sign that you might be under investigation — whether you find the allegations ridiculous or not. You will regret taking things lightly when, often many years later, you will suddenly find yourself in a situation that got completely out of control because you never bothered a lawyer to intervene and take care of it. Don’t make that mistake. Call us, find out what you know and what we are able to find out for you.
