Assaults on Specific Officials18 U.S.C. §
For offenses prior to April 24, 1996, the Federal officials
from assault and murder include not only those enumerated in 18 U.S.C.
1114, but also any additional officials designated for coverage under 18
§ 1114 by regulations issued pursuant to the authority granted to the
Attorney General. These regulations can be found in 28 C.F.R. Part 64. For
offenses occurring on or after April 24, 1996, § 1114 is expanded to
any officer or employee of the United States or of any agency in any branch
the United States Government. There is no longer any provision for the
General to designate individuals under § 1114 pursuant to regulation.
