Federal crimes are crimes that violate federal law or are committed on federal property or on Indian Reservations.  Any type of crime can trigger a federal charge.  However, the federal government has historically focused prosecution on certain types of crimes.  Such crimes include complex drug cases, financial crimes, fraud crimes, corruption crimes and cyber crimes.

The federal government is usually more equipped, both in terms of finance and resources, when it  comes to prosecuting such crimes.  As a result, the government spends an enormous amount of time investigating and building evidence against a person of interest.  Expensive, yet effective procedures  like wiretaps and surveillance are usually employed during an investigation by the federal government.

The  rules and penalties governing the procedure of a federal criminal case are markedly different from that of a state court.  For instance, unlike state courts where judges usually have freedom in imposing penalties, federal judges are usually required by law to impose certain harsh penalties; penalties usually involving long incarceration periods.

Defending against federal charges requires skill as well as a thorough knowledge of federal laws.  Federal crimes can be challenged by employing certain accepted defenses to criminal charges, effectively attacking the credibility of the government’s witnesses and effectively attacking the means by which the federal government built its case against you.

Not all attorney’s are qualified to practice in federal courts.  For that reason, if you have been charged with a federal crime, it is important that you hire an experienced attorney.  As a Chicago criminal attorney and lawyer, Attorney Uche is licensed to practice in federal court through the General Bar for the Northern District of Illinois and the prestigious Trial Bar for the Northern District of Illinois.
