It is worth underlining the vast difference between state and federal criminal court cases. The depth of investigation, powers vested in investigative agencies, the experience of investigators – federal criminal prosecutions are backed by a system far more powerful than the state apparatus.
In a federal criminal process, the pre-trial actions include initiating charges by the U.S attorney. The matter is taken up by a grand jury that decides if the case should proceed to the trial stage. At this stage of arraignment, the defendant has the chance to plead guilty or not guilty. This is followed by a trial, post-trial motions, and the appeals process. It can be a long-drawn-out and complicated process. But with a competent federal crimes lawyer by your side, you are assured of the right legal advice at every step.
A federal criminal conviction carries a far stiffer penalty, particularly if it involves drugs or sex crimes. The federal government’s jurisdiction over criminal cases has increased considerably. One reason for this is the very broad definition of activities that can be included in interstate commerce.
Federal criminal defense is a complex matter and if you are facing federal criminal charges, then you need the services of an experienced law firm that also has the credentials to help you get justice from the federal court.
