For this Assignment, you will be exploring the differences between state and federal jurisdiction in criminal prosecutions with respect to crimes against persons. The primary objective of this Assignment is to explain how the same conduct may be prosecuted either in state or federal court pursuant to applicable state and federal statutes. Be sure to select a crime against person, such as certain types of murder or kidnapping.

You are to identify ONE specific crime, a crime against a person, and describe the following:

  1. Create the factual scenario giving rise to the criminal prosecution in either state or federal court.
  2. Indicate the name of the specific crime which may be prosecuted in federal court based on the scenario and provide the definition of that crime, including a citation or reference to the applicable statute.
  3. Similarly, indicate the name of the crime which may be prosecuted based upon the same conduct in a state court. Be sure to identify the state statute, and as you did in Part 2, define the crime and provide a citation to the authority.

Your paper should be written in APA format with a length not to exceed 2 pages (excluding cover and reference pages).
