“Federal case is prosecuted by the government. Typically a federal case is going to be a much larger case than a state case, because there’s a much larger investigation that goes into it. Typically, on a federal case, you’ll have one or more federal agencies, such as FBI, DEA, ICE, ATF, all working together to make a larger case against a particular criminal defendant. Also, on federal cases, it’s very typical that you’re going to have a lot of co-defense on a particular case. Sometimes co-defendants want to testify against each other, and that’s why it’s important that you get an attorney quickly, who knows how to navigate the system, so that you can be first in line, if that’s what’s going to happen.”
