Federal charges

When it comes to Washington DC specifically, some charges are tried in the superior court of DC. However, a lot of crimes may result in federal violation and will therefore be undertaken by federal prosecutors who represent the US government. This means that they will have the backing of several federal agencies in their prosecution.

The agencies which will be involved in the prosecution including undercover operations, sting operations, and conducting investigations include the following:

  • Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)
  • Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA)
  • Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATF)
  • Internal Revenue Service (IRS)
  • Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)
  • Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)
  • United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)
