Punta Gorda Criminal Defense Attorneys
When a person commits a crime, it is usually against the state government, such as driving under the influence or petty
theft crimes. These crimes are handled by county and state law enforcement and courts. There are more extreme cases, however, where a person can be guilty of committing a crime against the federal government of the United States. All such crimes are then handled by federal agencies such as the
Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the
Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and the
Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA).
Examples of federal crimes include the following:
- Tax evasion
- Internet crimes
- Severe drug offenses
- Bank robbery
