What is the difference between Federal & state crimes?
The main difference between federal and state crimes is the jurisdiction responsible for investigating and prosecuting the crime. Federal crimes are offenses prohibited by federal law. They are investigated by federal law enforcement agencies such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and the Secret Service. These crimes include offenses such as embezzlement, drug trafficking across state lines, and crimes that occur on federal property, such as national parks, military bases, and government buildings.
State crimes, on the other hand, are offenses prohibited by state law and investigated by state law enforcement agencies such as state police or local police departments. These crimes can include offenses such as theft, assault, and murder that occur within the state's boundaries. Another difference between federal and state crimes is the severity of the penalties that can be imposed. If you've been accused of a federal crime, it is crucial you speak with a federal criminal defense attorney immediately. Federal crimes generally carry harsher penalties than state crimes, including longer prison sentences and higher fines. However, state crimes can also be punished severely depending on the nature and severity of the offense.
