Examples of Federal Crimes
Crimes may be investigated by the U.S. government and prosecuted in federal court when the offense involves federal government property, a federal official, or a violation of a provision of the United States criminal code.
Crimes that are often prosecuted in federal court include:
- Bank fraud
- Computer crimes
- Controlled substance violations
- Drug manufacturing
- Health care fraud
- Immigration law violations
- Internet fraud
- Securities fraud
- Tax crimes
The federal sentencing guidelines are complex and federal prosecutors rigorously pursue prosecution for federal crimes. Unlike state court, there is no possibility of parole for individuals who are convicted of a federal crime, since Congress eliminated early parole in the mid-1980s. If you are convicted, you will need to serve the entire sentence.
