While state court cases proceed by warrant or arrest, in federal court, your case could involve a target letter. A target letter, explained here in more detail, lets you know that a grand jury is looking into you. If you are a witness or a target, you could be summoned to appear before a grand jury. Of course, you should always have a lawyer to work with if you are facing any involvement in the federal system – because the federal court system, especially federal sentencing, is a very complicated area of law. Having a lawyer on your side is the best way to defend yourself against the charges that you face.
