What Is Considered a Federal Crime in Texas?

In the United States, a federal crime is any act that the U.S. federal legislation has deemed illegal.

Since criminal law exists at both the federal and the state levels, a "federal crime" is one that is prosecuted under federal criminal law, rather than under the state's law. Most crimes in the United States are at the state level, but federal prosecution does occur.
