A: Your question is too vague to even begin answering it. You really should discuss this issue with a federal criminal defense attorney regarding the particular prosecution that concerns you and the investigation.

A: I'm not sure by what you mean delaying an investigation. The police dont have to investigate on any particular schedule. They just have to charge before the statute of limitstions runs out. Delay may give you defenses in trial though. An experienced defense attorney in your corner can help you with that.
