Generally, a criminal charge can be executed at the state or federal level. However, some can be prosecuted as both state and federal crimes. Most crimes are state crimes and follow the laws established by the state constitution. These crimes are prosecuted by the state or district attorney and have penalties involving state detention facilities. Some of the types of state misdemeanor and felony crime include:
- Drug possession
- Assault and domestic assault
- Theft and Burglary
- Murder / Homicide
- Probation revocation
It should be noted that when a crime at the state level takes place across state lines, it will frequently come under federal jurisdiction.
When federal crimes go to trial, they are prosecuted by US attorneys and can carry punishments in federal detention centers. Types of federal crimes include:
- Money laundering
- Hate crimes
- Immigration crimes
- Drug trafficking
- Identity theft
