The Difference Between Federal & State Charges

While criminal law can be handled at both state and federal levels, federal crimes are handled and prosecuted differently than state crimes. Furthermore, if convicted, federal charges typically carry heavier punishments than state charges. Additionally, the severity of your situation may escalate your case from one that is handled by the state to one that is prosecuted by the federal government. Because criminal cases are so complex, it’s important to hire a criminal defense attorney who is familiar with handling cases at both the state and the federal level.

Examples of federal crimes include:

  • Bank fraud
  • Counterfeiting
  • Drug charges
  • Embezzlement
  • Kidnapping
  • Terrorism
