Defense Against Serious Federal Criminal Charges For The Eastern District Of North Carolina

How Federal Charges Are Different From State Law Charges

The structure of federal court is unique and vastly different from the state court system.

In federal court, the cases are different, the sentences are calculated differently, and the type of evidence that is admissible is different than in state court. There are even mandatory minimum sentences for certain federal offenses.

Additionally, federal prosecutors often exercise jurisdiction over what originally started as a state criminal charge. This means that your case could start out in state court, but end up in federal court.
