Attorney Fernández Defends Against State and Federal Charges

Fort Myers Criminal Defense Attorney

State crimes and federal crimes tend to fall under separate jurisdictions. However, some state crimes and crimes that occur across several state lines may also be prosecuted as federal crimes. A federal crime is investigated by federal agencies (such as the DEA or FBI), prosecuted by a United States Attorney, and heard in front of federal judges. State crimes are usually investigated by state or local law enforcement, prosecuted by state attorneys, and heard by state court judges.
