Facing Federal Crimes in Minnesota
The United States Congress creates federal laws (also called statutes). While many criminal acts fall under state law, others fall under federal law. Common reasons a crime committed in Minnesota could potentially fall under federal law include:
- The offender crossed state lines while committing an illegal act
- The crime involves international activity
- The crime took place on or involved federal property
When a crime is committed that falls under state and federal law, government prosecutors must decide if the offender will be held accountable in federal or state court. Our strong focus on criminal defense means we have the experience to guide you through this complicated process.
Felony or Misdemeanor Crimes: What’s the Difference?
While misdemeanor offenses carry sentences of one year or less, felonies can result in more extensive prison sentences. Because the U.S. Congress determines the penalties for all federal crimes, they also decide which criminal acts are felonies vs. misdemeanors. The Minnesota state legislature is charged with making determinations for criminal acts that violate state law. Whether you are facing felony or misdemeanor federal crime in Minnesota or Wisconsin, our experienced Minneapolis criminal defense attorneys and St.Paul criminal defense attorneys are here to represent you.
