Federal Crimes vs. Florida State Crimes
Many people wonder what the difference is between federal crimes and state crimes. In short, federal crimes involve federal agencies, federal courts, and federal prosecutors. These federal law enforcement agencies include, but are not limited to:
- Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)
- Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA)
- Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)
- Internal Revenue Service (IRS)
- US Postal Inspection Service (USPIS)
- Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF)
But what makes an offense a federal crime to begin with? A federal crime encompasses one or more of the following elements:
- Violates federal law
- Occurs on federal property or involves federal officers
- Crosses state lines
- Involves individuals from multiple states
- Violates customs and immigration violations
- Threatens national security
On the other hand, state crimes are charged under state law and involve state law enforcement agencies. As such, local prosecutors, police departments, and judges handle state crimes involving local residents. For clarity, common state crimes include:
Further, federal crimes typically carry harsher punishments than state crimes.
