What is the difference between a federal and state crime?

Most criminal offenses are prosecuted in State Court, like driving under the influence, assault and battery, and domestic violence. However, crimes that violate a specific federal statute are usually prosecuted in Federal Court. Federal prosecutions usually involve government agencies like the DEA, FBI, and IRS. Examples of federal crimes can include money laundering, drug traffic, and firearm violations.
