What Makes a Federal Crime?
There are many agencies which may gather evidence against you in federal cases, such as the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Secret Service, and Homeland Security. No matter which federal agency is running the investigation, the judicial process looks significantly different than cases tried in state courts.
A crime falls under federal jurisdiction when any of the following is true:
- The crime committed takes the defendant over state lines.
- The crime committed crosses state lines.
- The crime occurred on federal land or involved federal law enforcement.
- The crime violates customs of immigration laws.
