In the United States a federal crime or federal offense is a crime that is either made illegal by U.S. federal law or a crime that occurs on U.S. federal property.
First, the U.S. Attorney (not the State Attorney) prosecutes federal crimes. These crimes are investigated by any of the federal law enforcement agencies such as the FBI, DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration), the Secret Service, the IRS Criminal Investigation Division, and others. Additionally, if convicted, a defendant will be sentenced pursuant to the federal sentencing guidelines and put in custody of the U.S. Bureau of Prisons (not the state Department of Corrections).
In contrast to state criminal cases, most federal cases begin with a federal agent contacting the defendant to conduct a voluntary interview. Unfortunately, either through fear or ignorance, most defendants proceed to speak with the agent without consulting with an attorney.
This is almost always a mistake.
If you have been arrested or are under investigation by a local police department, you will most likely be prosecuted in a Florida state court.
They are prosecuted in either county or circuit courts in the county in which the charges are filed, by the state attorney. In some cases, early intervention by an experienced criminal defense attorney can even prevent an arrest and/or prosecution.
