Whether a criminal case is heard in state or federal court will depend upon several things:
- If the alleged criminal activity took place across state lines or international borders — such as Internet crimes or drug smuggling — it will typically be charged in federal court.
- If the prosecutor wants to seek greater penalties than she or he can achieve in state court
- If the crime occurred on federal land or on a military base
- If the activity broke federal but not state laws (such as federal weapons violations)
A federal felony conviction means a lengthy prison sentence, steep fines and a criminal record that can follow you for the rest of your life. It is crucial that you do not talk to anyone about the allegations that have resulted in federal criminal charges until you have spoken with an experienced attorney.
You can count on our firm for a strong defense. We regularly advise other attorneys on critical issues in criminal law.
