Minnesota And Wisconsin Criminal Defense

Chmielewski Law Office, defends against state and federal charges. The differences between state and federal criminal cases are not obvious. For example, many narcotics cases can be charged either by state or federal authorities. If the narcotics are bought and sold in the same state, the case is typically charged by the state. However, if narcotics are bought in one state and sold in another, this is considered a conspiracy and charged as a federal case.

In most cases, individuals who are arrested will know where their case will be prosecuted. If they are arrested by federal authorities and taken to a federal detention center, the likelihood is that the case will be in federal court. If they are arrested by a local police department and taken to a city or county jail, they will most likely be prosecuted by the state. In either case, it is important for the accused to exercise the right to remain silent.
