Criminal Defense Representation in Federal Court

A crime can be charged through the federal government, which makes it different from state charges for a crime. In the United States, the federal justice system has sentencing guidelines in place and oftentimes they are more serious than state sentencing guidelines. If you are facing charges in the federal court, it is imperative that you seek experienced legal counsel from a Phoenix federal crime lawyer.

What makes an offense a federal crime?

An offense that is illegal under federal law can be charged as a federal crime. In addition, if the offense takes place on federal property, it may also result in federal charges. Federal court cases can involve felony drug crimes, arson, fraud cases, and more. Generally, criminal acts defined in the U.S. Code have corresponding statutes at the state level. An individual who commits an alleged violation of criminal law can have their case heard in either jurisdiction, depending on a number of factors.

Factors That Cause Cases To Fall Under Federal Jurisdiction Include:

  • The case is being investigated by the FBI or another federal agency
  • The case is being investigated by task forces or a joint state and federal agency
  • The alleged offense or offenses occurred in multiple states or crossed state borders
  • The Judge/Prosecutor or other individual requested the transfer
