    What is a Federal Crime?

    A federal crime is defined as a criminal act that is committed against the United States of America. Federal crimes can be prosecuted by the United States Department of Justice and are typically tried in federal courts. Some federal crimes include drug trafficking, terrorism, money laundering, and fraud. Federal crimes carry stiffer penalties than state crimes, so it is important to know whether you are being investigated for or charged with a federal crime. If you are under investigation for a federal crime, it is important to contact a criminal defense attorney who has experience handling federal cases. An experienced attorney can help you navigate the complex federal criminal justice system and protect your rights.

    Your local police department will likely charge you with state crimes if you have been accused of committing a crime. This means that Utah prosecutors have accused you of breaking state law, and the state courts will handle criminal proceedings. Some crimes, however, also violate federal law.

    In these cases, the FBI or another federal agency may investigate you, and you could face charges in federal court. Federal law will govern your punishment if convicted, not state law.
