What is Federal Crime?
A federal crime is an act that violates a law established by the federal government, occurs in multiple states, or causes or could cause widespread and significant harm. Due to this definition, federal crimes are considered the most serious of all crimes on the books. Penalties often range well into the thousands of dollars in fines and years or decades of incarceration. Depending on the severity and nature of the crime, life imprisonment without parole could be the maximum form of punishment in Rhode Island.
