Houston Federal Crime Attorney
Criminal offenses that directly violate U.S. federal legislation can be prosecuted as federal crimes. Although there is some overlap between federal and state criminal law, meaning that a crime made illegal on the state level is also illegal on the federal level, there are also several offenses that fall specifically under federal law. Additionally, federal charges are often prosecuted when cases involve multiple victims (white collar crimes) or multiple states, occur on federal property, are committed by large criminal organizations, or involve large-scale operations, among other situations. A few examples of the types of federal charges commonly prosecuted are:
- Tax evasion / tax fraud
- Securities fraud
- Mortgage fraud
- Insurance fraud / healthcare fraud
- Firearms and weapons offenses
- Federal drug crimes
- Wire fraud and mail fraud
- Internet crimes
- Bank robbery
- Immigration offenses
- Conspiracy / RICO offenses (racketeering)
