CRIMINAL DEFENSE • DISCIPLINARY INVESTIGATIONS & HEARINGS

Why would I be charged with a federal crime?

You may be charged with a federal crime if you committed a crime that was associated with a federal or national issue, such as interstate trafficking in contraband, federal tax fraud or mail fraud. You might also be charged with a federal crime if you committed a crime, such as a bank robbery, that falls under both federal and state law.

Additionally, you would be charged with a federal crime if you participated in a criminal act, such as counterfeiting, which is a federal offense because the federal government is under an obligation to print money. Similarly, you would be convicted of a federal crime if you assaulted an agent of the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA).
