What does a target letter look like?

Back to Miami Criminal Defense Attorney Frequently Asked Questions

Video Transcription

People love getting individualized letters, but one letter you don’t want is what’s called a target letter. That’s a letter usually from a federal prosecutor stating that you are the target of a federal criminal investigation. What that means is that it is very likely that the federal prosecutor intends to charge you with a federal crime and that your arrest is imminent. Very often these target letters will tell you, “Don’t discuss this matter with anyone.” You can discuss it with anyone you want, and the person you should be discussing it with, immediately, is a federal criminal defense attorney who can advise you what to do. You should not, under any circumstances, call the prosecutor who signs the letter, or call the agent who’s mentioned in the letter, or turnover documents that they’re asking you to turnover. Don’t do anything but contact an experienced federal criminal defense attorney if you get a target letter.
