A: When you day DC are you referring to federal District Court in Maryland or DC as in District of Columbia? Where is the case now? How many others were involved? It seems like you are being charged with being part of a ring. Federal charges are based on statute instead of the common law and are based on the applicable United States code or other federal code. Perhaps you can respond with more information to better inform the answer here.
