Federal Crimes

Ohio Criminal Defense Lawyer with Proven Courtroom Experience

There are several crimes that are automatically categorized as federal crimes, including drug crimes, white collar crimes, Internet sex crimes, health care fraud, tax fraud, immigration violations, and firearms offenses. Other crimes can be elevated from a lesser offense to a federal charge under certain circumstances — such as if they were committed against a federal agency or on federal property. Violation of federal laws will result in federal criminal charges. These are slightly different from state charges for several reasons, including:

  • The case will be tried in federal court instead of state court
  • The penalties that you face for conviction will almost certainly be more substantial than if you were charged at the state level
  • If convicted, you will face a federal prison sentence
  • Prosecutors and investigators of federal offenses are usually more equipped and have more funding than those at the state level — meaning you need a strong defense on your side

Facing federal criminal charges can be an extremely difficult situation for anyone. If you have been arrested and charged with a federal crime, you need representation on your side that can aggressively fight these charges and help you to effectively pursue your rights in court. It is important to understand that you could face extremely harsh penalties for a criminal conviction. For this reason, it is vital to prepare for your case as much as possible.
