Prosecution happens at both the federal and the state levels (based on the Dual sovereignty doctrine); thus a “federal crime” is one that is prosecuted under federal criminal law, and not under state criminal law under which most of the crimes committed in the United States are prosecuted.
Below is a list of federal crimes that can be prosecuted at the federal level. If you have been accused or charged with one of these crimes, please contact the law firm of Nathan J. Mays now.
