Federal Theft

In most cases, theft crimes are prosecuted under state law. However, there are certain types of theft that fall under federal jurisdiction, making them federal felonies, which are frequently subject to more severe penalties. It is not unheard of for what would be considered petty theft under a state law to become escalated to a felony if the theft is considered a federal crime. Federal theft crimes include:

  • Identity theft (using another person’s identity)
  • Carjacking
  • Theft of federal property (regardless of value)
  • Transporting stolen property across state lines
  • Pirating intellectual property (music, movies, books, etc.)
  • Counterfeiting federal documents

These are serious allegations that can forever alter a person’s life if convicted. In addition to prison time, you face the possible loss of your job, your home, and your reputation.

Atlanta Theft Attorneys

There is a big difference in defending against theft charges in the state court system versus the federal system. The laws and penalties are completely different and require an extensive knowledge of the federal sentencing guidelines and federal statutes. In addition, federal prosecutors have extensive resources available to them that are not available to prosecutors in the state criminal justice system.
