Federal Offenses

federal-offenseA federal offense is a crime that is illegal under U.S. federal legislation and that is prosecuted under federal criminal law—not under state criminal law. Federal crimes may include such acts as tax evasion, fraud, counterfeiting, immigration offenses, drug trafficking, bank robbery, extortion, perjury, airplane hijacking, child pornography, mail fraud, destruction of public mailboxes, and more. When you are charged with a federal offense, the court procedures as well as the judges and prosecutors pose a much more powerful challenge to you, the defendant, than they do at the state level. You could also face a mandatory minimum sentence or incarceration if you are convicted.
