Felonies can put a damper on your future

Federal crimes come in many shapes and forms, from horrifying incidents like airplane hijacking to blackmail. Any time a person faces a federal charge, it's necessary to take a deep look into the case and provide a defensive option.

Federal crimes often come with higher penalties than those at the state level. Most have at least a year of prison as a potential punishment, along with high fines and other possible penalties.

Federal crimes specifically violate the federal laws of the United States. The United States attorneys prosecute them for the United States, so those accused go to federal courts and are before federal judges. It is possible to face federal and state charges at the same time for similar crimes.

What are some common crimes that are federal offenses?

Some common crimes that fall under federal law include:

  • Arson
  • Blackmail
  • Anti-racketeering
  • Child abuse
  • Concealment of assets
  • Coercion
  • Copyright matters
  • Counterfeiting
  • Drug abuse
  • DUIs and DWIs on federal property

There are many others as well. Federal crimes are typically felonies, which means that you will see a distinct change in what you can or cannot do in life if you are convicted. It can be extremely hard for those with felonies on their records to find housing, to obtain grants or loans for schooling, to find a job and to live comfortably even after serving time in prison.

The best option is to avoid a conviction at all costs. With the right help and legal information, it's possible to avoid serious consequences in your life. Our site has more information.
