Federal Crimes

Scottsdale Federal Criminal Defense Attorney

Licensed to Practice in Both State & Federal Courts

Any crime that violates a statute passed by the United States Constitution is considered a federal offense. Likewise, any behavior in violation of state or local authority is deemed a state crime. Historically, federal crimes have tended to involve activities of national concern. More recently, federal jurisdiction has expanded as the FBI plays a more active role in prosecuting crimes that were once the exclusive domain of the state. Oftentimes, a single crime can be prosecuted at both the state and federal level.

The most common federal crimes are related to:

  • Immigration
  • Drugs
  • Fraud
  • Firearms

According to the most recent accounts, the crimes listed above constitute more than 80% of all federal charges. The most serious federal crimes include murder, manslaughter, rape, and aggravated assault. Penalties for federal charges are typically much harsher than crimes at state or local levels. So it is essential that you work with a lawyer who is prepared to help you fight your federal charges.
