What Sets Federal Cases Apart
Federal cases can include aggravated assault, murder, narcotics and some weapons charges. These crimes are often more serious than state crimes, and the penalties can be much more severe. If you are charged with a federal crime, it is important to understand the differences between federal and state law.
Federal crimes include more than just some violent crimes. Other situations – such as getting involved with a conspiracy to commit a crime, being accused of bank or wire fraud, distributing narcotics or selling illegal substances – can also be federal criminal cases.
There are a few key differences between federal and state cases. First, the federal government has a broader jurisdiction than state governments. This means that the federal government can prosecute crimes that occur anywhere in the country, while state governments can only prosecute crimes that occur within their borders.
Second, the federal government has a wider range of penalties than state governments. For example, the federal government can sentence you to life in prison without the possibility of parole, while most state governments cannot.
What To Do If You Are Under Federal Investigation
