Many crimes violate both state and federal laws and, therefore, can be
charged in either state or federal court. However, the penalties for federal
charges are generally much greater than the penalties are for state charges.
Accordingly, the government may bring federal charges to maximize the
defendant's potential punishment.
Examples of federal charges include, but are not limited to:
- Drug conspiracies
- Immigration violations
Additionally, federal charges often result in imprisonment not only for
the convicted crime, but also for crimes for which the accused was acquitted
or never charged. That is, the judge needs only to find by a "preponderance
of the evidence" that the defendant committed the alleged crimes.
This is a lower standard than "beyond a reasonable doubt."
