    Yes.  In a court of law you are innocent until proven guilty.  That being said, ignorance of the law is not a valid defense.

    "If I get caught, does the U.S. government trust my innocence?"  Would you trust someone with a "few felonies?"

    If law enforcement has substantial reason to believe you have committed a felony that's what you will be charged with. To say "I didn't know I was breaking the law", doesn't make it OK and does absolutely nothing in your defense. It won't even be considered or discussed.

    Being ignorant of the law doesn't equate to innocence

    Ignorance of the law does not protect you from the consequences of breaking it. You are not innocent!
