What Are Federal Offenses?

Title 18 of the United States Code refers to federal crimes and how they are handled by the courts. This includes both felonies (serious crimes that result in imprisonment for longer than a year) and misdemeanors (crimes that can result in jail time for less than a year). Federal crimes often occur on federal property, are connected to federal property, are prosecuted on a federal level, or deal with crimes that cross state or country borders.
