What is the Difference Between Federal & State Crimes?

While there are certain similarities between state and federal criminal cases, there are also some significant differences. For starters, federal criminal investigations are usually conducted by federal law enforcement agencies. Some of the most familiar federal agencies include the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the Postal Service, and the Customs and Border Protection and Immigration and Naturalization Services (INS). These agencies have nearly unlimited resources at their disposal when seeking a conviction against someone.

Federal cases also function based on federal sentencing guidelines and mandatory minimum penalties. In most cases, the penalties for offenses prosecuted at the federal level are more severe than those at the state level. This is especially true for cases involving drug trafficking and child pornography.

When Is a Crime Tried at the Federal Level?

A federal crime is any offense that violates federal law or which is carried out over multiple states. Sometimes crimes that would otherwise be tried at the state level are prosecuted at the federal level because of their increased severity. Some of the most common cases tried in a federal court include mail fraud, IRS violations, immigration violations, kidnapping, drug trafficking, destruction of mailboxes, and counterfeiting.

In order for a federal court to have jurisdiction over a case, the crime must meet one of the following conditions:

  • It falls under a constitutional grant of authority
  • It impacts interstate commerce
  • It occurred on land that is owned or controlled by the federal government
