Attorney Lara can act as a guide.

What is the difference between federal and state charges?

The federal system is rigid and well-funded. Unlike the state system, most federal investigations are well developed. By the time the case has been filed against you, the attorney for the United States has worked with several agencies to develop the case against you.

A federal case is more serious because:

  • Prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys that have significant time to dedicate to the case, meaning the accused has been investigated for weeks or longer.
  • Overseen by United States Magistrate Judges and United States District Judges.
  • Handled in federal district court, which has less cases, a deliberate schedule and nearly never dismisses a case for an unprepared prosecutor.
  • Conditions of release and supervision of an officer can accompany a bail payment.
  • Juries are pulled from the district of the court, not necessarily the same county, meaning that jurors will be more diverse than in state court.
  • Federal sentencing guidelines, not state sentencing, govern your punishment, which are oftentimes more severe.
