In the U.S., any crime that occurs on Federal land is a Federal crime, and the accused may be charged with committing a felony offense. Depending upon the circumstances, the State may also be able to prosecute the defendant. This means that the defendant has the possibility of being tried at both the State level and the Federal level. The Fifth Amendment states that an individual may not be prosecuted for the same crime twice, which is referred to as "double jeopardy." A case in which a defendant is tried at the State and Federal level for a crime committed on Federal land is not considered double jeopardy.
Listed below are crimes that, if they take place on Federal property, are considered Federal offenses:
- Aircraft theft
- Drug violations
- Drunk driving
- Environmental crime
- Property theft
- Robbery of a post office
- Selling or intent of selling obscene materials
- Vehicle theft
- Violating Federal intellectual property laws
- Watercraft theft
