Targets, Subjects And Witnesses

There are three statuses of persons under investigation for federal crime. The first is that of target. A target is someone believed to have committed a crime. The purpose of the investigation is to gather evidence to indict. This person needs a good lawyer NOW.

The second status is that of subject, someone who appears to have engaged in suspicious behavior. It is not uncommon for subjects of investigations to become targets as the investigation progresses. This person should seriously consider hiring a lawyer.

You may also be investigated as a witness, someone who knows something about a crime that was committed.

“Do not be lulled into a false feeling of security by investigators or prosecutors. Their assurances are worthless. If they’re at your door, you are in jeopardy. If you are concerned about your status in a federal investigation, it is time to protect yourself.” — Michael Spano
