If you or a loved one are facing federal charges, please do not hesitate to contact us so that we can look into your case completely free.
Below is a brief list of federal charges we have successfully handled in Phoenix and Tucson, Arizona:
Federal crimes are usually illegal under both federal and state law, but the government defers to the states in most cases. The federal government usually becomes involved in cases when there is an interstate element to the offenses because it involves more than one state, or when the offense happens on federal property.
An interstate element refers to any part of the alleged crime that connects two or more states. There are several examples, including mail and wire fraud, drug trafficking across state lines, and kidnapping if the victim is moved from one state to another.
Furthermore, a crime can also fall under federal jurisdiction if it is committed on federal property. Federal property can be a location such as a national park, military installation, or the border of the United States.
All illegal entries and immigration crimes are considered federal offenses.
As a general rule, the penalties for federal crimes are harsher than those at the state level. For instance, drug offenses that are prosecuted at the federal level have mandatory minimum prison sentences. An individual that is convicted of a federal crime will be sentenced to a federal prison, rather than a state prison.
