I'd be curious to know how many turn into federal offenses.

Just from personal experience, one of my close (not personally close but relation close) family members got popped by local, it turned federal, and that individual is looking at 100+ years. Will likely never get out but if they do, will be too old to even work. TBH, I'm kinda split on my opinion because I know enough to believe this person could willingly have done what they were doing, but probably weren't. More than likely it was due to another close family members choices, it's much more probable that they were given an ultimatum and just followed orders.

I've also had a few friends from my younger years end up in a similar boat albeit not as bad as the above people.

All of them were drug related charges. Non-violent offenses.
