FAQ's for Criminal Defense

What is the difference in a federal offense and a state offense?

The federal court and state court are two completely different systems. Federal offenses will be investigated by FBI, DEA, and other federal government agencies. State offenses will be investigated by local police, state agents or parish sheriffs. Federal judges will preside over federal criminal cases and elected state judges will preside over state offenses.  

Is it possible for criminal offense charges to be dropped?

Yes, it is possible for state and federal charges to be dropped once proven innocent. To have the best chance of this happening, contact a criminal defense attorney right way.
