Attorneys at LAWSTACHE LAW FIRM routinely represent clients facing federal criminal charges. The basic difference between federal and state criminal offenses is that a federal offense violates a federal law and a state offense violates a state law. In some cases, however, federal and state laws cover the same area of criminal law. If a state law contradicts a federal law, the federal law generally trumps the state law in the interest of the national welfare. In other areas of criminal law, the federal government has exclusive power to regulate, enforce, and prosecute alleged crimes. Federal government have exclusive power to prosecute crimes involving interstate commerce, national security, and federal programs. For example, most white collar crimes, such as credit card fraud, tax evasion, and welfare fraud, are prosecuted in federal courts.
Compared to California State Courts, the federal government vested a lot of power in Federal judges. In the federal system, the sentencing guidelines estimate the amount of prison time an individual is likely to do for a crime. These guidelines are only advisory, not mandatory on the judiciary. This means that a judge does not have to follow the sentencing guidelines. Aside from trial and/or plea negotiations, the sentencing hearing often becomes a crucial moment in the defendant’s life.
