Aggressive Criminal Defense By Former Prosecutors & Police Can Make A Difference

In general, Federal crimes fall into one of seven categories:

  1. Sex Crimes;
  2. Child Pornography Crimes;
  3. Fraud & Theft Crimes;
  4. Crimes Involving Firearms;
  5. Fraud & Theft Crimes;
  6. Drug Crimes; and,
  7. Crimes against a Person.

Sex Crimes are normally prosecuted when the sex crime occurs on federal property or the parties involved either communicated or traveled between states. The explosion of internet communications has led to many prosecutions of sex crimes due to communications occurring over several states.

Child Pornography typically involves persons possessing, selling, distributing, or trafficking in child pornography. As with many sex crimes, the internet communications are considered to have crossed state lines, allowing for federal prosecution.

Fraud & Theft Crimes are more commonly referred to as white collar crimes and include filing false financial documents, hiding assets in a bankruptcy proceeding, credit card fraud, and laundering money. Most fraud and theft cases entail the prosecution discovering and following the paper trail that leads to those committing the crime.

Crimes Involving Firearms tend to include convicted felons illegally in possession of a firearm or possessing a firearm while involved in drug trafficking. Federal prosecution occurs when the firearm involved has been manufactured in one state and used by the defendant in another state.

Drug Crimes involve the buying, selling, manufacturing, and distributing of illegal narcotics. Most federal drug crimes are similar to those found under state law, with the federal drug crimes having the added element of transporting the illegal drugs across state lines, either by the person or using some delivery service such as the U.S. postal office or private delivery companies such as Federal Express.

Crimes against a Person involve Murder, Manslaughter and Assault charges that occur on federal property. Crimes such as kidnapping involve the victim being transported across state lines, while bank robbery is considered a federal offense due to the money taken being covered by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.
