What Is A Federal Crime?

A federal crime is a crime committed within the territory of the United States and may be perpetuated or consummated in international jurisdiction and across state lines.

If the accused is alleged to have committed a crime in North Carolina and consummated that crime in New York, there is a federal crime. A drug charge, for example, may be considered as a federal charge by the DA. There are so many factors involved that cases like this can only be handled by an experienced professional.

By jurisdiction, Federal Crimes are investigated upon by federal agents such as the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) as well as the Post Office for mail fraud.

Generally, the crimes under Title 18 and Title 26 of the United States Code are considered as Federal Crimes.
