The difference between state and federal courts can be daunting to a person who doesn't work in the court system or isn't familiar with federal criminal proceedings. The U.S. Constitution being the supreme law of the land in the United States has created a federal system of government in which power is shared between the federal government and the state governments. Due to federalism, both the federal government and each of the state governments have their own court systems and although there are similarities, the federal system operates under a different set of statutes, rules and procedures than does the state court.
