Being charged with a federal crime is a serious event. The Federal Bureau of Investigation, or FBI, and the federal prosecutors work together to aggressively investigate and prosecute all federal offenses. If you are convicted, you may owe a sizeable fine, be forced to turn over your personal property to the authorities and/or serve a lengthy prison sentence. For most federal crimes, even the minimum prison sentence is severe.
About Federal Crimes
A federal crime is any crime that violates a United States law, as opposed to a state criminal statute. All crimes committed on US federal property are also treated as federal offenses. Examples of federal crimes include:
- Interstate drug trafficking
- Social Security fraud
- Tax evasion
- Charges involving child pornography
