Do you know the difference between crimes tried in Federal Court as opposed to State Court? There are many significant differences that you should know about, especially if you have been charged or you think that you may be charged with a Federal crime.
Federal crimes are serious offenses and they generally carry much harsher penalties, such as longer prison terms than State crimes. Bank fraud, bank robbery or serious drug crimes are examples of Federal crimes.
If you are convicted of a Federal crime you not only face alarming punishments, but your ability to get a job, a mortgage or possess firearms, as well as other areas of your life, will most likely be affected. It is imperative that you have legal representation if you are involved in a Federal court case.
