Federal Crimes vs. State Crimes
In America, there are both federal laws and state laws. An individual commits a federal crime when he or she violates statutes that have been established by Congress. People who break laws set by a particular state have committed a state crime.
At times, criminal activity may be both a violation of state and federal laws. In this scenario, the U.S. Department of Justice (USDOJ) decides if they will prosecute the offense as a federal crime or refer the case to a state court system.
Crimes that can be tried at the federal level include:
- Tax evasion
- Possession of illegal weapons
- Aircraft hijacking
- Mail fraud
- Child pornography
- Sex trafficking
- Aggravated sexual abuse
- Bank robbery
- Credit card fraud
- Computer crimes
- Identity theft
- Drug trafficking
- Hate crimes
- Art theft from a museum
- Electoral fraud
- Damaging public mailboxes
- Immigration offenses
Federal crimes often carry significantly higher penalties than offenses charged at the state level. When you discover you are under federal investigation, it is vital to speak with a criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.
