Any individual who is facing charges for a criminal offense must retain legal counsel at once. Criminal charges, whether at a state or federal level, carry very serious penalties. The primary difference between state and federal charges is jurisdiction. State courts generally hear cases involving charges for crimes that violate state law, including theft, rape, DUI, traffic violations, as well as drug crimes and others. Federal charges involve more serious crimes, including those that violate federal law, or on federal property, or by a federal employee.
Drug trafficking, white collar crimes, tax evasion, credit card fraud, bank fraud, mortgage fraud, and computer crimes, as well as offenses listed under the RICO Act, are all crimes that will be filed at in federal court. If you are facing criminal charges, it is important that you retain counsel from an Olathe criminal attorney who has the knowledge and experience serving as defense counsel in federal court. Not all criminal lawyers are admitted to practice in this court system.
