What Are Federal Crimes?
Most crimes in Kentucky will be prosecuted in a local state court. Federal crimes are violations of laws that were passed by Congress and are crimes that happen on federal property, like national parks, federal prison, or crimes that occur across state lines.
Additionally, federal jurisdiction includes other offenses occurring outside federal land. In most cases, you might find yourself under a criminal investigation by agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Homeland Security, Drug Enforcement Agency, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Internal Revenue Service, and the Secret Service.
If you are convicted of a felony offense, the sentencing on your case will be set by the federal sentencing guidelines that has a uniform punishment policy. Federal judges have to follow these guidelines as their are designed to fair and consistent sentencing. The sentencing guidelines has many different levels of seriousness.
Obviously, the more serious the crime, it will be considered a higher offense level. Every federal criminal defendant is assigned to a criminal history category that is determined on the level and timing of prior criminal behavior.
It's at this point where the criminal history and the offense level meet that determines an appropriate sentencing guideline range. There are many factors considered that could increase or decrease a base level offense and impact a sentencing guideline calculation.
These factors include level of participation in the crime, acceptance of responsibility for the crime, and whether you used a firearm or obstructed justice. As stated, federal judges must follow the sentencing guidelines, but they do have discretion to consider any mitigating factors in your case.
