While many state and federal crimes overlap, crimes that are investigated and prosecuted by the federal government are typically more significant in nature and oftentimes carry a severe potential sentence. Federal crimes can range from traditional crimes such as murder, fraud and embezzlement to crimes that are more exclusively prosecuted by the federal government such as terrorism, computer crimes, RICO/racketeering, tax evasion, interstate drug crimes, wildlife game and fishing violations, and international crimes. Regardless of what the crime is, the federal justice system differs significantly from the state court system.
While there are many federal crimes that are unique to the federal justice system, the federal sentencing scheme is also entirely different than the state court system. With severe mandatory minimums and a complex, heavy-handed sentencing regulation, being charged with a federal crime can often mean that defendants are exposed to millions of dollars in fines, lengthy sentences in federal prison and additional penalties.
Compared to state-level criminal investigations, federal crimes are investigated by federal agencies such as the FBI, IRS, DEA, DHS, EPA and a variety of other federal agencies. As Colorado has a number of military bases, national parks, national forests and reservations, crimes that occur in these locations can also be investigated and charged as federal crimes.
Regardless of the nature of the crime and where it occurred, it is very important that those charged with federal crimes hire federal criminal defense attorneys that are experts at defending against federal charges.
