Federal crimes carry an incredibly intricate web of rules and procedures as well as complicated sentencing guidelines that make Superior Court at the State level drastically different. What makes a federal charge so different from State Level crimes is the level of involvement with respect to the investigations of the charges. It is a well-established fact that there are far fewer federal crimes being charged in any given area as compared to state charges. Therefore, one must consider that the federal prosecution and defense of public offenses must be more targeted and deliberate to make the battle worthwhile. This is why you will rarely see federal prosecutions of minor offenses in terms of injury to others or financial benefits to be gained. Therefore, federal criminal defense is a highly selective process of choosing the right battles and developing very long-term defense strategies that leave no stone unturned.
