Federal cases are cases in which a person is charged with violating federal (rather than state) laws. It is not the same as the local Minneapolis Minnesota District Courts. These cases require more instruction than state-level criminal courts and an exhaustive knowledge base. More importantly, the stakes are higher in federal court and there are many pitfalls that must be avoided.
The federal government is ever increasing and includes the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigations), DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency), DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration ), CID (Criminal Division of the IRS), Postal Services, AFT (The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives), Secret Service, Customs, ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement) and the list goes on. A federal crime also includes crimes committed on federal property in Minnesota, such as a local post office.
