Criminal charges can be addressed at the federal level, depending on the severity or nature of the crime. Defending yourself against a federal felony is not a simple matter. You need an attorney who knows the ins and outs of federal court. Some common federal crimes include: DUI/DWI on federal property; reckless driving on federal property; federal drug charges; kidnapping; internet child pornography; and fraud. The location of a crime can also determine where a case is tried. With many government buildings, roads and property in Virginia, even common traffic violations, such as reckless driving, can be tried in Virginia's U.S. district courts
