Information About Spying Crimes
Espionage is a term used to describe the act of secretly obtaining information about a foreign government or competing business for the purpose of giving one's own government or business a strategic advantage. Espionage is considered a federal crime when it puts the nation's defense in jeopardy, or when it directly benefits a foreign nation. Charges for this crime are considered of the utmost seriousness, and any form of federal espionage (including economic espionage as addressed under the Economic Espionage Act of 1996) can result in penalties that include deportation, imprisonment for a lengthy period of time, and even the death penalty.
If you have been charged with espionage, or are under investigation for this crime, it is vitally important that you consult with us right away. Any attempt to answer an investigatory question or face your charges on your own may decrease your chances of a successful resolution to your case.
