When federal crimes are violated, charges are exclusively brought in federal courts. Federal crimes aren’t necessarily worse than state law crimes, but they are often prosecuted more rigorously. This is because the federal government has more available resources to pursue convictions than the New Jersey state prosecutors, and also because federal prosecutors tend to be more seasoned attorneys.
Convictions for federal crimes can also lead to more serious long-term consequences than state-law convictions, because federal criminal records are more easily accessible and automatically disqualify someone from federal benefits. There are nine classes of federal crimes, ranging from serious felonies to minor infractions.
The federal court system does not operate the same as the New Jersey state court system. Federal courts have different rules of evidence and procedure. Therefore, it is important for defendants in federal court to be represented by an attorney that understands the rules of federal court and has experienced handling federal criminal defense.
