Complex State Court Crimes/Investigations

State investigators frequently undertake significant and complex investigations and prosecutions. These are often pursued through the state attorney general or large district or state attorneys’ offices. When states undertake these investigations, the process is very similar to a large federal investigation. There is often a task force representing several state agencies. Often, the investigators will work with a grand jury specially impaneled for the investigation. Additionally, the investigators will have subpoena power to compel the production of evidence.
