FBIUnderstanding Federal Crimes

Federal crimes differ from misdemeanors and felonies in that they were committed on federal property or against the federal government in itself. Federal crimes are among some of the most serious crimes that can be committed and, because of this they incur the harshest penalties of all crimes. Individuals who are convicted of a federal crime may face years in state prison and thousands of dollars in fines. If you find yourself being charged with a federal crime, it is a good idea to contact an Oklahoma criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Atkins & Markoff is an Oklahoma City law firm with extensive experience working on these types of cases. We offer free consultation services and are committed to fighting any federal charges you may be met with.

Common Types of Federal Crimes

There are a wide range of federal crimes that an individual may be charged with. Because any crime committed on federal property is considered a federal offense, the types of charges are all encompassing. It should also be noted that some certain types of crimes are considered federal offenses regardless of where they are committed. This is most commonly because of the seriousness of the crime. Examples of federal crimes include the following:

    • Fraud
    • Bribery
    • Identity theft
    • Kidnapping
    • White collar crimes
    • Federal drug crimes
    • Racketeering
    • Terrorism
    • Treason
