State vs Federal Crimes
If you’ve been arrested and charged with a federal crime in Dallas, Texas or the surrounding area, there are some things you should understand. First, federal crimes and federal courts are different from what you would encounter at the state level.
Perhaps the most notable distinction between federal and state crimes is the nature of the criminal statutes. The vast majority of criminal statutes in this country are based on state law. For instance, all of the following are generally state crimes, based on state laws, which would be prosecuted in state courts:
Perhaps the most important thing to remember about federal crimes is that there are minimum sentences. This means that judges often do not have discretion to reduce your penalty or show mercy in the same way that they might at the state level.
If you are facing federal criminal charges, an experienced federal defense lawyer can help. An experienced trial attorney understands the law, can look for weaknesses in the government’s case, and can negotiate to obtain a better outcome. In some cases, a lawyer may have to defend your case at trial. It’s important to work with a team you can trust.
