FloridaFederal Crimes Lawyers in Sarasota County, Florida

While most criminal offenses are prosecuted in state court, the United States federal courts also have jurisdictions over certain types of criminal offenses.


In the federal courts in and around Sarasota County, Florida, the prosecuting attorneys with the United States Attorney's Office (USAO) prosecute criminal offenses.


Jurisdiction to prosecute the case within the federal criminal justice system can occur because the crime impacts interstate commerce, the crime occurred on land owned by the federal government or an Indian reservation, or the allegations involve a loss or harm to the federal government.


Criminal defense attorneys in federal court fight serious felony charges, minor federal offenses, petty felony offenses, and infractions.


Cases in the federal criminal justice system can include everything from tax evasion to drug or firearm charges, to civil rights violations.
