We Can Handle Federal Criminal Cases in Charlotte From Start to Finish

When someone is charged with crime in federal court, the charging document typically is a criminal complaint or an indictment. A criminal complaint is a sworn statement, filed by a law enforcement officer, that alleges that a suspect has committed a federal crime. the complaint is presented to a federal judge (often a U.S. Magistrate Judge) who makes a preliminary finding of probable cause and then issues a warrant for the suspect’s arrest. At that point, the defendant is entitled to a probable cause hearing, unless he or she is indicted by a grand jury beforehand.

Another way of charging someone with a federal crime is by way of a grand jury indictment. The grand jury receives evidence from a federal prosecutor and witnesses. If the grand jury determines that there is probable cause that a crime has been committed and the accused person is the one who committed the crime, it will return an indictment.
