What are Federal Crimes?
Federal crimes are crimes that have been committed against the federal government or against a federal employee, or crimes that have been committed on federal property. Federal crimes are different from state crimes in that they are prosecuted by the federal government, not the state, and they are prosecuted under federal law, not state law. Federal crimes are also investigated by federal law enforcement agencies, such as the FBI, Homeland Security, or the DEA.
Here are some common types of federal crimes:
- Drug Offenses: Federal drug crimes involve the manufacturing, distribution, trafficking, or possession of controlled substances. These offenses are prosecuted under the Controlled Substances Act and can result in significant prison sentences and fines.
- White Collar Crimes: White-collar crimes are non-violent offenses committed for financial gain and typically involve deception or fraud. Common white-collar crimes include embezzlement, insider trading, bank fraud, wire fraud, securities fraud, and tax evasion.
- Firearms Offenses: Federal firearm crimes encompass various violations, such as illegal possession, sale, or trafficking of firearms, as well as using firearms during the commission of another crime.
- Cybercrimes: With the increasing reliance on technology, cybercrimes have become more prevalent. Federal cybercrimes may involve hacking, identity theft, computer fraud, online scams, and cyber espionage.
- Immigration Offenses: Federal immigration crimes pertain to violations of immigration laws, such as illegal entry, visa fraud, human trafficking, and harboring illegal immigrants.
- Bankruptcy Fraud: This crime involves knowingly providing false or misleading information during bankruptcy proceedings, attempting to hide assets, or abusing the bankruptcy system for personal gain.
- Terrorism: Federal law addresses various terrorism-related offenses, including providing support to terrorist organizations, planning acts of terrorism, and conspiring to commit terrorist acts.
- Child Pornography: Possession, distribution, production, or consumption of child pornography is a federal crime carrying severe penalties and mandatory minimum sentences.
- Human Trafficking: This crime involves the exploitation and transportation of individuals for forced labor or commercial sexual exploitation.
- Counterfeiting: Federal counterfeiting crimes encompass producing, selling, or using counterfeit currency, government securities, or documents.
- Environmental Crimes: These offenses involve violations of federal environmental laws, such as illegal dumping, pollution, and wildlife trafficking.
- Public Corruption: Federal public corruption crimes target government officials who engage in bribery, extortion, or abuse of power for personal gain.
- Racketeering (RICO): The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) targets individuals involved in organized crime and provides enhanced penalties for individuals engaged in patterns of criminal activity.
- Mail and Wire Fraud: These offenses involve using the mail or electronic communication to defraud others, typically for financial gain.
- Civil Rights Violations: Federal law protects individuals from discrimination and abuse of civil rights by government officials or entities, and violations can lead to federal prosecution.
Federal crimes are taken very seriously by the federal government and carry severe penalties. The federal government has a wide range of resources at its disposal, and it will not hesitate to use those resources against you if you are convicted of a federal crime.
