Many people don’t realize that crimes are tried on many different levels. Most crimes are held under the jurisdiction of the state. In some cases, however, a crime will fall under the jurisdiction of the federal government. Federal charges tend to have harsher punishments. It is important to hire an experienced California federal attorney who has knowledge of California and federal laws, and can attempt to have the charges brought under state law instead of federal law.
