What Is A Federal Crime?
Some crimes that might otherwise be state crimes — such as sexual assault or murder — become federal crimes when they are committed on federal land or when the perpetrator crosses state lines in connection with the crimes. Other crimes are classified as federal crimes based on the severity of the allegations — such as drug trafficking involving large quantities of controlled substances. Finally, some areas of criminal activity are always federal by their nature, such as international money laundering and immigration-related crimes.
Federal criminal charges, being prosecuted by the federal government, are often preceded by years of case building and evidence gathering. Crimes that are committed on a federal level are often prosecuted by the FBI, IRS, Secret Service, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and other federal agencies.

The Importance Of Working With A Trial Lawyer Experienced In Federal Cases
Federal judges are often more strict than judges at the state level. Federal judges tend to mete out harsh sentences, often without any chance of parole. As such, it is wise to have lawyers who focus on federal defense, as the cases are often much more involved, drawn out, and thorough than those on a state level. We at Coyle Law Firm are experienced federal criminal defense lawyers with a proven track record of successful outcomes for our clients in federal courts.
