In the United States, a federal offense or federal crime is generally any type of conduct defined as criminal by U.S. federal legislation or an offense which violates the Constitution or federal statutes. Federal crimes are generally more serious than crimes charged in state courts, and the penalties in federal cases are generally harsher. Federal criminal defense tends to involve cases that are difficult to defend, and the cost of defense is often high. For federal crime, it is best to consult a federal criminal defense attorney in New York. A federal criminal defense lawyer is familiar with the federal rules of evidence, rules of criminal procedure, trial procedure, and the federal court system.
