Federal crimes are those crimes which directly contravene federal legislation. They include serious offenses such as child pornography crimes, bank robbery, drug offenses, white collar crimes, and gun/weapons violations. Federal charges can also be levied at an individual who has committed a crime while on federal land (such as a government building or national park).
The penalties attendant to most federal crimes are very serious. They can include fines literally in the millions of dollars, probation, mandatory forfeiture of personal property, and lengthy prison sentences. It is crucial that you have strong representation in the event that you are charged with a federal crime, as the prosecution in such cases is usually well prepared and in possession of considerable resources. Your attorney must have the experience and wherewithal required to be able to challenge the validity of the opposition's case, and possibly secure an outcome that involves the reduction or elimination of your charges.
It is recommended that you contact an Akron federal crime defense attorney if you have been charged with a federal crime, as you will likely be facing very serious penalties.
