The Federal Criminal Court Process

There are some differences in how criminal cases are handled in state and federal court. For the defendant, the greatest concern is often that the stakes are higher with federal crimes, compared to those prosecuted on the state level. The consequences for conviction are harsher with greater penalties. In addition, the conviction rate is higher at the federal level. Some of the differences with federal crimes include:
  • Stricter rules for conditions of release, posting bail, financial review, and supervision
  • Cases handled by federal prosecutors working with federal law enforcement
  • Official federal judges preside over cases involving federal crimes
  • Juries are comprised of federal jurors from the judicial district
  • Penalties for conviction based on Federal Sentencing Guidelines
Due to the differences between state and federal criminal court, sentencing guidelines, and the high stakes of federal criminal cases, it is important that you hire a qualified attorney with experience in the federal system. Our federal crimes attorneys are well versed in federal court procedures, federal law, and the complexities of the system.
