What Is the Difference Between 
State and Federal Charges?

Any individual who is facing charges for a criminal offense must retain legal counsel at once. Criminal charges, whether at a state or federal level, carry very serious penalties. The primary difference between state and federal charges is jurisdiction.

State courts generally hear cases involving charges for crimes that violate state law, including:

  • Theft
  • Rape
  • DUI
  • Traffic violations
  • Drug crimes
  • And others

Federal charges involve more serious crimes, including those that violate federal law, or on federal property, or by a federal employee. The following crimes will be filed in federal court:

  • Drug trafficking
  • White-collar crimes
  • Tax evasion
  • Credit card fraud
  • Bank fraud
  • Mortgage fraud
  • Computer crimes
  • As well as offenses listed under the RICO Act

If you are facing criminal charges, it is important that you retain counsel from an Olathe criminal attorney who has the knowledge and experience serving as defense counsel in federal court. Not all criminal lawyers are admitted to practice in this court system.

In-House Resources and Specialization

The American legal system is overseen by both state and federal governments. When a crime directly violates federal legislation, is committed on federal property, or is committed against a federal institution, cases will be handled by a federal court rather than a state court. In addition, federal offenses are often more serious crimes, much more aggressively prosecuted by a number of large agencies, and harshly penalized.​​​​​
