Will I have to go to trial?

The cause of trial depends on the class of charges pressed against you:

Federal offenses, like drug trafficking, are handled in the U.S. District Court.

Felony offenses, such as sexual offenses, murder, and DUI offenses are tried in state and federal courthouses, based on jurisdiction.

Misdemeanor offenses, like petty theft are handled in State court.
