Tampa Federal Offense Defense Lawyer
In the United States, someone can commit a federal offense in two ways. The first way is to commit a crime that is made illegal by federal legislation such as mail fraud, which is when fraud is perpetrated by using mail that crosses state lines or involves the U.S. Postal Service. The second way is to commit a crime on federal property or against a federal agency.
When you are charged with a federal offense, the stakes are high even if your offense was considered minor. That’s because federal offenses often result in harsher penalties than those you could face in state court. Be prepared to be investigated by the FBI, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the IRS or another federal agency.
