What Are Federal Crimes?
Federal crimes are offenses that violate United States federal law, or those that are carried out across multiple states, such as wire fraud and drug trafficking. These types of offenses are prosecuted by federal prosecutors who work for federal agencies like the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
In many cases, federal offenses carry more substantial criminal penalties than those levied in state courts. With your future at stake, hiring federal criminal defense attorneys with a substantial amount of experience in defending federal charges is vital.

Types of Federal Criminal Cases
Many federal cases are also white collar crimes that involve business professionals or other individuals who allegedly used deception for financial gain. In most cases, white collar crimes are handled in federal court rather than state courts. However, not all federal criminal cases are white collar crimes.

Consequences of a Federal Crime Conviction
Individuals who are arrested or are under investigation for federal offenses face harsh sentences if convicted. Under federal sentencing guidelines, you may be sentenced to many years in federal prison. Significant fines and restitution may also be ordered if you are convicted of a federal crime.
In addition to criminal penalties, a conviction for a federal crime will result in a criminal record that may affect various aspects of your life. Your federal criminal conviction can impact your ability to obtain employment or work in certain occupations. Your gun rights may be taken away. You may be unable to rent or buy a home in certain communities because of your federal crime conviction as well.
