In the federal system, prosecutors and investigators focus on:

  • Narcotics trafficking
  • Conspiracy
  • Possession of large amounts of illegal drugs

The federal system is most different from the state system in how it goes about assessing punishment. In state courts, a defendant can choose whether a judge or jury sets punishment and the range of punishment can be very broad, in some cases, from 5 years to 99 years or life in prison. In the Federal system, punishment is set by a District Judge (never a jury, except in death penalty cases), according to the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, an often controversial set of schedules for various crimes that give a judge a limited range of punishment from which to choose. Determining what sentence is likely to be assessed is complicated and requires a great deal of skill to see that all of the proper information gets before a judge before a sentence is handed down.
