Federal Court vs. State Court

Most criminal charges in Florida arise from alleged violations of state or local laws, but federal offenses are much more serious. Anyone who violates a federal law or commits a crime that crosses state lines can be charged in federal court.

The government is currently prosecuting many cases in federal court today that were previously litigated in state court. Since federal courts operate under a different set of rules, sentences and penalties are often much more severe.

Federal courts operate on a complicated sentencing scheme that is highly punitive. Additionally, federal prosecutors often have access to greater resources than their state counterparts. These factors can mean that you will be facing a longer period of incarceration with much stiffer fines. To learn more about the penalties for your specific charges, reach out to our skilled criminal defense team.

Let Us Help You Fight Your Charges

Federal investigations are complicated and time-consuming, and you may already know that you are a suspect. Regardless of the criminal charges being investigated, you should avoid speaking with law enforcement officials unless you have an attorney present. Although you may be very sincere in trying to help investigators, you can quickly find yourself facing a federal judge in the Middle District Court.

Our Gainesville federal crime attorneys can guide you through this process while ensuring the prosecution does not violate your rights. We have the skills to uncover evidence that can help you avoid an arrest, negotiate a plea bargain, or successfully navigate the federal criminal justice system.

If you are a suspect or have been charged with a federal crime, contact the Law Offices of Edwards & Jones at (352) 329-3632 to schedule a consultation.
