What Is The Difference Between A State And A Federal Crime?

A federal crime occurs when a suspect violates a law passed by the United States Congress. A state crime, however, involves violating a local or state law. There are many areas where state and federal laws overlap, and many crimes can be prosecuted in both state and federal court.

What Is The Difference Between A Misdemeanor And A Felony?

There are two classifications for crimes at the state and national level: misdemeanors and felonies. Felony offenses are more severe than misdemeanors, often involving violence or the presence of a firearm. Felonies carry higher potential penalties, including prison time.
