Some crimes, such as certain white-collar crimes or crimes involving drugs or firearms, may be prosecuted under either state or federal law. Other crimes involve the violation of federal statutes and are always dealt with by federal prosecutors and judges. If you have been charged with a federal crime, it's possible that an investigation was going on for months before you were even aware of it. This gives the government a “head start” in the case. In addition, being charged in the federal system also means that if convicted, you are subject to punishment under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, which may be severe.
When you find yourself in these circumstances, it's important to remember that not all criminal defense attorneys are created equal. The federal justice system has many differences from the North Carolina state court system, and in order to protect your rights, it's essential to have an attorney who is experienced in the defense of federal charges. You depend on your attorney's guidance, so you need someone who can help you make good decisions.
