Why Are Federal Crimes Different?
Criminal offenses may be charged at the state or federal level, depending upon the type of offense, the location and the details of the case. Understanding the differences between a state-level charge and a federal charge is key to your future.
There are many differences between state and federal charges, including the:
- Penalties: Federal crimes carry stiff penalties, including incarceration in a federal penitentiary, stiff fines and more. Combatting these penalties is key to your future.
- Prosecution: Federal prosecutors, or United States Assistant Attorneys, often are better funded, better equipped and better trained than their state-level counterparts. This allows the prosecution to better gather evidence, identify witnesses and create an aggressive case against individuals charged with federal offenses.
- Process: Federal criminal proceedings often take more time and involve more steps than state-level offenses. In most cases, individuals charged with federal crimes are denied bail or cannot afford to post bail, leaving them imprisoned for the duration of proceedings. Individuals released on bail in federal cases are held to strict conditions and supervision throughout the process.
Our lawyers help you understand the challenges associated with federal crimes, as well as your options for mounting an aggressive defense against your charges.
