What Constitutes a Federal Crime?

Crimes that can be prosecuted in federal court include any activities explicitly criminalized by federal law as well as:

  • Crimes that cross state or federal borders
  • Crimes involving interstate or international commerce
  • Crimes that are committed on federal property

The laws governing federal crimes are complex and navigating them requires extensive legal expertise.

Examples of federal crimes are many. Bank robbery, kidnapping, identity theft, illegal wiretapping, election fraud, counterfeiting, carjacking, exploitation of children, immigration offenses, domestic terrorism, federal hate crimes, federal bribery crimes, federal drug crimes are just a familiar few.

How Federal Crimes Are Prosecuted

Many activities that are criminal at the federal level are also criminal at the state and local levels. In such cases, it is up to the discretion of federal prosecutors as to whether or not they are charged in federal courts.

Federal courts have access to far greater resources than state courts and federal prosecution is notoriously harsh. Federal crimes require tight defense. Whatever your situation, if the charges you face are federal charges, it is strongly advisable that you seek legal counsel from a federal crime lawyer with a proven record of successfully defending crimes in federal courts.

Why Was I Contacted?
