Additional Information:

Hello. I was arrested in Worcester for gun possession without a firearm identification card. Now it seems like the federal prosecutor also wants to bring charges for the same thing based on the same arrest. What’s going on and what should I do?


Your use of the word “seems” is confusing. If a federal prosecution for gun charges will occur against you, it will either happen or it won’t. You really need to consult directly with an attorney in more detail for both matters. In such cases, the federal matter will take precedence and be prosecuted first if in fact you are charged federally.
