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.

What are the Most Common Types of Federal Crimes?

Federal agencies investigate a vast range of crimes, although, there are a handful of offenses that frequently receive attention. Federal officials lookout for these common federal crimes but will investigate any and all red flags they come across. Whether your alleged crime is common or not, however, you can trust our attorney to defend you no matter what you’re up against. Many federal offenses impose mandatory minimum sentences and unimaginable fines upon conviction, which is why you must choose a lawyer who is experienced in federal court and is deeply familiar with the federal criminal justice process.

To give you a better understanding of common federal crimes, see below:

  • Fraud/theft/embezzlement
  • Robbery
  • Counterfeiting and forgery
  • Racketeering (RICO)
  • Child pornography
  • Drug crimes
  • Kidnapping
  • Sex crimes
  • Firearms and weapons crimes
  • Immigration
