Marietta Federal Defense Lawyer

Understanding Federal Offenses & Your Rights

Most common crimes, such as DUI, theft and assault, are violations of the Criminal Code of Georgia. Investigations and arrests are conducted by local law enforcement such as the Marietta Police, the Cobb County Sherriff's Office or the Georgia State Patrol, and cases are referred to the Cobb County District Attorney for prosecution. A conviction may result in the defendant being sentenced to serve time in a county jail or state prison. Under certain circumstances, however, the case may fall under the jurisdiction of the Federal Government, with Department of Justice agencies such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives or the U.S. Marshals Service.
