Federal criminal trials apply to those accused of federal
criminal offenses. These proceedings, which are governed by the Federal Rules of
Criminal Procedure, differ significantly from ordinary jury trials on the state
level. A grand jury must first review the evidence and indict the defendant, who
is then charged with a crime and tried either by a regular jury or a judge. Such
trials are increasingly rare in recent years due to sentencing guidelines that
reward guilty pleas; this is the case despite the rising number of federal
investigations and prosecutions.
The prosecution in a federal criminal trial must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant is guilty of the federal crime charged; if a guilty verdict is unanimously determined by the jury, sentencing then takes place, opening the case to appeal (though appellate courts do not reverse verdicts, only determine the lawfulness of the proceedings).
Because of the nuances of federal criminal procedure and the complexity of properly trying these cases, it is essential that those charged with federal criminal offenses seek an experienced attorney who knows the ins and outs of the federal system and can effectively defend them against their charges.
