What Happens If Convicted of a Federal Crime?

If convicted of a federal crime, the consequences are substantial and can have a profound impact on various aspects of your life. Federal crimes typically involve serious offenses that violate United States laws and fall under federal jurisdiction. Following are some of the potential repercussions for individuals facing federal charges:

  • Sentencing Guidelines: Federal sentencing standards are frequently stricter than those at the state level. Convicted individuals can face significant prison sentences, fines, or both, depending on the nature and severity of the offense.
  • Financial Penalties: Federal convictions often result in substantial financial penalties, including fines, restitution, and forfeiture of assets acquired through criminal activity.
  • Criminal Record: A federal conviction results in a permanent criminal record. This record can have far-reaching consequences, affecting employment opportunities, housing applications, and various aspects of daily life.
  • Loss of Rights: Being convicted of a federal crime may result in the forfeiture of specific privileges, including the right to vote, possess firearms, or maintain certain professional licenses.
  • Supervised Release and Probation: Apart from incarceration, federal sentences might encompass intervals of supervised release or probation, wherein individuals are required to comply with stringent conditions.

Client Testimonials

Our Clients Rave About Their Results
  • They were always available quickly, to address my concerns. Having dealt with some law firms before, I really appreciated this.

    “Steven Raiser's law firm handled my case with excellence throughout the process. I had a SBA EIDL loan that got transferred to the Department of Treasury unexpectedly, and had a 30% penalty added to the amount due, and due very quickly, which was very stressful. After talking with Steven Raiser, and working with Harry Gill, who was absolutely brilliant in working with me and preparing the case, they were able to recall the case to the SBA. They were always available quickly, to address my concerns. Having dealt with some law firms before, I really appreciated this.

What Are Federal Charges?

A person commits a federal crime when they specifically violate federal law or commit a crime on federal land, such as a national park or military reservation. The prosecution of federal crimes is handled by government agencies, such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and U.S. attorneys, who report to the U.S. Attorney General. Federal charges tend to come with significantly harsher penalties than state equivalents.

Some criminal acts violate both state and federal law. In these instances, the applicable state government may defer to the federal government or vice versa. In some cases, both the state and federal governments may choose to prosecute.
