Export control offenses are a priority of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. If you’ve been accused of an export control offense, you have a serious problem, and you need to hire a serious criminal defense attorney.
In an export control case, the government has to prove that a person exported something that shouldn’t have been sent outside of the United States, either because it’s illegal to send in general, like narcotics, because it requires a license to be sent out of the country, like some weapons, or because something was sent to a country our government does not allow trade with, like North Korea. Export control offenses can be prosecuted and charged in a number of different ways, and people who are convicted can face significant prison time. Each violation of the Export Control Act can result in a sentence of as much as 10 years in prison.
Matt Kaiser is an experienced criminal defense attorney who has represented clients charged with export control offenses in federal court. These cases very often grow out of an undercover investigation. The key to challenging the government’s case in an export control case is often to show that the government’s surveillance video does not show what the government thinks it shows. Any ambiguity that a determined and experienced criminal defense attorney can find in the government’s evidence against you can help raise a reasonable doubt in the jury.
