Top 10 Most Wanted Fugitives by U.S Secret Service (2024 Update)

Top 10 Most Wanted Fugitives by U.S Secret Service (2024 Update)

Investigations by the FBI and CIA have centered more on apprehending and neutralizing terrorists in recent years than on domestic criminal activity.

Therefore, the amount of terrorists (including Muslim extremists, cyberterrorists, and hackers) on the most wanted list has changed, but mobsters, gang leaders, and serial killers are still always included. However, as the FBI has stated, “To protect and defend the United States against terrorist and foreign intelligence threats and to enforce the criminal laws of the United States” is at the core of its work.

“Any person who has fled from any State to avoid prosecution for a crime or avoid giving testimony in any criminal proceeding” is the definition of a fugitive from justice under 18 U.S.C. § 921.

Usually, the penalty is penalties, but if you were running really seriously—for example, by attempting to flee the country—you might even go to jail. You should anticipate spending the rest of your trial in custody if you are apprehended after trying to flee from your trial.
