Federal Court Is Different Than Iowa State Court

Huge differences exist between Iowa State and Federal Court.

First, the United State’s Attorney’s Office prosecutes crimes in Federal District Court. The Department of Justice employs these career, professional prosecutors. In contrast, local County Attorneys prosecute state cases.

Next, Federal Court prison sentences are usually more severe. The Federal Sentencing Guidelines govern federal sentencing. The Federal Sentencing Commission created the Federal Sentencing Guidelines. The guidelines yield very harsh sentences even for low level offense. When sentencing a person, Federal Judges must consider these harsh guidelines.

Finally, all of the resources of the federal government are available to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Thus, the F.B.I., D.E.A. and A.T.F. can all assist in federal investigations and prosecutions. As a result, in Federal Criminal Cases, the quantity and quality of evidence is substantially better than in Iowa State Courts.
