CJA Panel Training - Defending Cases from the Other Side of the World: International Investigations and Federal Indictments
The Criminal Justice Act (“CJA”) provides for the appointment of counsel in criminal cases to persons who are financially unable to obtain adequate representation. 18 U.S.C. § 3006A(a). In the Southern District of Texas, in cases where the Federal Public Defender has not been appointed to represent a defendant who is entitled to the assistance of appointed counsel, individual defense attorneys are chosen from a federal panel. The Federal Public Defender is charged with assuring that members of the CJA panel are familiar with federal criminal practice.

Several unique issues can arise when evidence or the defendants themselves are brought from abroad to face federal criminal charges in the United States. This presentation will highlight some of those issues, including challenges to interrogations conducted outside the United States, suspension of the statute of limitations, and due process challenges to the prosecution of a foreign national. Attendees should leave the presentation with both an understanding of the relevant law and ideas for how to litigate these issues in federal court.

The State Bar of Texas MCLE Department has approved this seminar for 1.0 hrs. of CLE credit (Course No. 173170564). There is no cost for participants or for those attorneys wishing to apply for the CLE credit. If you have any questions, contact Dora Madrigal at Dora_Madrigal@fd.org
