The Difference Between State and Federal Crimes
A federal offense involves any that cross state borders, occurs on federal property, or specifically target the federal government. They are prosecuted by federal law enforcement agencies that are usually well-funded and very experienced in their field. In addition, the judge that will be hearing your case often specializes in your crime and has more open schedule than a state judge.
Here are some examples of commonly prosecuted federal crimes:
- Drug trafficking
- White collar offenses such as fraud and money laundering
- Bank robberies
- Evading taxes
- Child pornography
- Immigration violations
