What is the difference between a state crime and a federal crime?
Most people who are arrested and charged with a crime - such as DUI, shoplifting, or a drug-related offense-are prosecuted at the state level because these actions are violations of state laws. Federal crimes, on the other hand, generally involve activities occurring in more than one state or that affect interstate commerce. Violations that would normally be considered state crimes can be classified as federal offenses if they take place on federal property. Common examples of federal crimes include
drug offenses, such as trafficking; certain types of
internet sex crimes, such as distribution of child pornography; and
white collar crimes, including wire fraud and identity theft.

Don't Talk to Anyone but Your Attorney
Whether or not you are represented by a lawyer yet, do not overlook your right to remain silent. If you are charged with a crime, it is wise to not speak to anyone except an attorney you have hired. There is practically nothing you can say to the investigators that will improve your situation. Remember, if they have charged you, they already believe you are guilty. If you are called in for questioning and invited to tell your side of the story, be aware that what you say may actually assist the investigators in building a case against you. Investigators are good enough at what they do without your help. Instead, exercise your Constitutional right to remain silent by politely refusing to discuss the matter until your attorney is present to advise you. Take the first step toward defending yourself now by contacting us for a free case evaluation. Anything you say to us is confidential, and we are on your side. We want to help you resolve the charges and avoid a conviction so contact us today!
