According to United States federal law, individuals who commit crimes on federal or government property can be subject to prosecution in a federal court. As federal crimes, these cases create more significant risks for defendants, as well as enhanced criminal penalties. In many cases, federal property crimes are also prosecuted as felony offenses. When choosing legal representation for your case, you should select a firm that has exemplified any ability to handle legal procedures as they are conducted in a federal court and against more experienced and talented federal prosecutors.

Nearly any type of crime that occurs on federal property can be prosecuted as a federal crime. While not all criminal offenses will be handled in a federal court, there still always remains the potential that federal prosecutors can indict offenders. Some common examples of the types of crimes prosecuted under federal jurisdictions include:

  • Violent Crimes, including robbery
  • Burglary
  • Arson
  • Firearm crimes
  • Theft
  • DUI
