While many crimes are tried within the state court system, any crime that violates federal laws is treated as a federal crime. This means that the offense will be handled by a federal judge in a federal court. Additionally, some crimes may be prosecuted in either state or federal court, depending on the specifics. If you or a loved one has been charged with a federal crime, you could face significant consequences if convicted.

In general, a federal crime involves some national or federal issue. Drug trafficking, federal tax fraud, kidnapping across state lines, mail fraud, counterfeiting, and crimes that take place on federal property may all be prosecuted as federal crimes. Any crime that occurs on federal land or involves federal officers will likely be tried as a federal crime. Whenever the criminal conduct involves more than one state, such as an internet fraud scheme that targets individuals in multiple areas across the country, it becomes a federal crime. Penalties for federal crimes tend to be quite severe, including years in federal prison and/or expensive fines.
