A federal crime is a criminal act that violates United States federal laws and legislation or a criminal act that is committed against the United States federal government or on federal property.
Federal crimes are investigated by federal government agencies, such as the FBI, CIA, DEA, etc. They are also prosecuted by federal prosecutors and heard in federal court.
If you have been accused of committing a federal crime, you must seek experienced and knowledgeable legal representation immediately.
The federal government is the most powerful organization in the world and has the money and resources to conduct a lengthy, invasive, and thorough investigation against you.
You will also likely be brought into custody where you will be subjected to intense questioning by federal agents who know how to get answers out of people.

Federal Crime Penalties in Arizona
Federal crimes are extremely serious criminal offenses in comparison to state charges. The U.S. Attorney prosecuting your case has much greater resources at their disposal and will likely seek the most serious penalties possible. In some cases, you may even face crimes at the state and federal levels.
If you are convicted of the federal charges brought against you, you could face years, if not your entire life, in prison. You could also be forced to pay high fines and restitution to victims. In the most extreme cases, you could even be sentenced to the death penalty.
Federal offenses are typically harsher for a variety of reasons:
- Stricter sentencing rules under federal statutes
- Federal judges must adhere to the strict sentencing guidelines
- Federal prosecutors have less discretion with plea bargaining
- Higher maximum punishments on the federal level
- Federal crimes typically carry enhanced punishments
Having the conviction of a federal crime on your record can also have detrimental effects on your personal life. You may no longer be welcomed by your community, and your relationships with your friends and family may be permanently destroyed.
