Federal Offenses

Most crimes committed are offenses  against the state government, such as driving under the influence (DUI) or petty theft crimes.

Local or state law enforcement make arrests and county courts handle such crimes. However, in more extreme cases, a person can be accused of committing crimes against the United States federal government.

All of these severe cases are then handled by one or more of the federal agencies: Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA).

Examples of federal crimes include the following:

  • Bank robbery
  • Counterfeiting
  • Fraud
  • Internet crimes
  • Drug offenses – Large cases
  • Tax evasion
