The U.S. Code contains many different federal crimes that a person may face charges for. Many have to do with allegations that cross state or international borders. This covers more than a person might think – for instance, an email containing child pornography sent by a person in NYC to a person in Brooklyn goes through servers and systems in other states or, sometimes, other countries.
Criminal offenses in federal law include offenses related to:
One of the most common charges is for Conspiracy. If you are accused of acting in concert with others to commit anything illegal under federal law, you may face charges of conspiracy, and face the same penalties as you would if charged with the underlying offense.
Some agencies are tasked with investigating certain types of offenses. Others have broader jurisdiction. Agencies include:
The lead prosecutor in a federal prosecution is the United States Attorney. The state of New York has four districts. The city is divided into two of these. Kings County is in the Eastern District, and New York County is in the Southern District. Each district has a U.S. Attorney. An assistant U.S. Attorney will prosecute in the courtroom.
A person charged with a federal offense faces significant challenges. The U.S. government has effectively infinite resources to investigate and prosecute suspects. Many federal offenses carry mandatory minimum sentences, meaning the accused, if convicted, may face decades in prison regardless of whatever mitigating circumstances may exist.
However, there are often options available to the accused. The sooner a person facing charges contacts a skilled federal criminal lawyer, the better the chances of a more positive resolution.
