Overview of Federal Court
A federal case ordinarily begins with an indictment after the grand jury find sufficient cause to believe the accused committed the offense(s). Thereafter, federal agents seek an arrest warrant to arrest the defendant and bring them to their initial appearance. Agents typically arrest during the morning and the defendant appears that afternoon for their first appearance. Federal charges are extremely serious in light of the substantial prison exposure a defendant typically faces. The government holds unlimited resources at their disposal to ensure the accused later stands convicted. Federal agents usually work alongside federal prosecutors for months if not years before an indictment is issued. Early retention of an experienced criminal defense attorney can help deflect the government’s case at its inception to avoid criminal charges altogether.
