Federal prosecutors or the Assistant United States Attorneys take on a federal criminal case differently with more complex procedures compared to state crimes cases. Penalties for federal crimes are much more intense upon conviction.
Differences Between State and Federal Crimes:
1. Violations of statutes passed by the US Congress
2. Crimes or activities that are more of a national concern
1. Violations of ordinances passed by the local & state authority or legislature
Some state crimes could have the FBI called in to handle if they impact the nation’s safety. Such crimes could be prosecuted in both the state and federal courts.
