Have you been charged?
Have you been charged with a federal crime? These very serious crimes often carry heavier penalties than those charged at a state level. Federal crimes usually carry a minimum sentencing of at least five years in federal prison. This sentencing can, of course, increase depending on the crime that was committed and the particular circumstances that it was committed under. Although there are specific crimes which carry federal charges, crimes that are committed on federal property or on Indian reservations automatically become a federal crime.
Under Title 18 of the United States Code, literally thousands of offenses can be considered a federal crime. These crimes range from postal service tampering to espionage.
