Federal cases are far more serious than state crimes for the defendant due to the tremendous resources Federal prosecutors have at their disposal. Federal agencies including the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Department of Homeland Security, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, as well as special task forces, may all be utilized to gather evidence against a defendant. These agencies have at their disposal a number of expensive and high-tech methods to gather evidence against a defendant, including, but not limited to, video cameras, phone taps, bugging devices and paid informants.
A federal investigation may take months or even years to complete before charging a person with a crime. Federal prosecutors do not indict until they feel they have overwhelming evidence against a person. As well, Federal sentences are far harsher than state sentences, and there is no possibility of parole in the Federal penitentiary system.
It is for these reasons that a person who has been indicted on Federal charges must realize the serious of the allegations against them. You are fighting the Federal government alone, and it is critical that you retain the services of an attorney experienced in Federal cases to assist in fighting the vast resources of the Federal government.
