Crimes under Federal Jurisdiction
The federal criminal justice process is very different in Florida or any state. Federal prosecutors are better funded and conduct more thorough investigations. Federal courts follow their own rules, procedures, and laws with federal judges personally appointed by the President of the United States and confirmed by the U.S. Senate. The penalties for federal offenses are much more severe than penalties under state laws.
Federal authorities prosecute certain crimes that fall under the following categories:
- Criminal cases involving bankruptcy, immigration, patents, the Postal Service, and coining and regulating money
- Crimes committed on federal property such as U.S. national parks, federal courthouses, federal prisons, as well as airplanes or ships flying the American flag
- Crimes committed across state lines or involved interstate commerce such as kidnapping or drug trafficking
Federal criminal defense is completely foreign to attorneys who primarily practice in state courts. Our Fort Lauderdale criminal defense trial attorney knows the federal rules and is familiar with the federal judges. Negotiating with federal law enforcement and trying federal cases in U.S. district courts takes very specific federal experience and is much more difficult than at the state level.
