I Was Charged With A Federal Crime, Where Will My Case Actually Be Heard?
The United States is divided up into districts. Where your case occurred is going to determine in which district your case will be dealt with. Sometimes, an offense includes multiple jurisdictions. In that case, it is up to Federal law enforcement which jurisdiction they want to prosecute you in. There is what is called a Rule 29 Motion, which allows you to ask for your case to be moved to a closer jurisdiction. Of course, both districts have to agree to permit the case to be moved.
What Are The Differences Between Federal And State Crimes?
A lot of federal and state crimes are the same, meaning they could be prosecuted either at the federal or state level. The difference usually comes down to the scale. If the case includes a large amount of drugs or money, it will most likely be prosecuted federally.
