The Criminal Process

If you are facing federal criminal charges, it's likely that you have been under investigation by the FBI or another federal agency for some time. Generally, by the time you face federal charges, the U.S. Attorney's Office (federal prosecutors) and perhaps officials from the Department of Justice are involved in your case.
