Crimes defined by state and national laws

In the State of Florida, we are bound to both the laws enacted by the Florida legislature and federally by the Congress of United States. A large amount of conventional criminal activities committed in Florida are covered by state criminal law and the accused are prosecuted in the Florida court system. However, when a federal crime is committed in Florida, the defendant will be charged with a federal offense. Federal criminal laws govern situations that extend outside the state, comprising those laws that involve U.S. government agencies and personnel as well as violations that range outside state lines:

  • Drug Trafficking 
  • Federal Property
  • Federal Employees
  • Federal Taxes
  • Receipt Of Federal Benefits
  • Federally Guaranteed Civil Rights
  • Federal Tax Evasion
  • Interstate Commerce

As a former Florida prosecutor and U.S. attorney, experienced criminal defense lawyer Michael Cohen has been immersed in both Florida and federal criminal law for over 30 years.
