Federal Offenses

Federal Offenses | Laws, Rules And Procedures Are Different

A federal offense is different from a state crime. A federal crime is under federal law and prosecuted under the rules of federal criminal procedure.Examples of federal crimes may include:

  • Fraud
  • Counterfeiting
  • Drug trafficking
  • Bank robbery
  • Extortion
  • Perjury
  • Child pornography
  • Mail fraud

Individuals facing federal charges are up against an entirely different court system, set of rules, and different judges and prosecutors, than at the state level. Further, mandatory minimum sentence or incarceration law could apply for those convicted of a federal offense.
