Miami Federal Sex Crimes Attorney

Sex crimes are common. They are often charged at the state level, but sometimes they can be charged at the federal level. This means it is up to the prosecutors at both levels to determine in which court you will be prosecuted.

A federal crime is one that violates U.S. federal legislation. Although most prosecutions are done at the state level, the federal government may exercise its jurisdiction over criminal matters when:

  • The state lacks jurisdiction.
  • The crime crossed state lines.
  • The crime is committed through the mail or via the internet.
  • The offense occurred on federal property.
  • The offense is severe and must be punished harshly.
  • The crime involved other offenses, such as money laundering or tax fraud.

Sex crimes are punished severely, especially when children are involved. Don’t fight these charges on your own. Seek legal help right away from a Miami federal sex crimes attorney from Asilia Law Firm.

Examples of federal sex crimes include:

  • Sex trafficking. This involves the recruitment, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for the purpose of a commercial sex act through force, fraud, or coercion.
