Federal Crimes


Have you been arrested for a federal offense? You may be panicking or even feeling uncertain about the nature of the charges against you. While some crimes are investigated at the state or local level, certain types of crimes are investigated and charged at the federal level.

Federal charges include, but are not limited to:

  • Weapons charges
  • Fraud
  • Conspiracy
  • Certain drug charges
  • Computer crimes
  • Aggravated assault
  • Certain violent crimes
  • Money laundering

Federal crimes are one of the most serious types of offenses due to the penalties that can be imposed for a conviction. Depending on the nature of the alleged crime, you could face significant time in federal prison in addition to other civil and criminal penalties. Federal crimes are investigated by federal agencies, such as the DEA, CIA, or FBI, and the prosecutor hired to prosecute you in federal court will be highly experienced and have significant resources at their disposal.
