Should the State and the Federal Government both be able to prosecute you for the same crime?


Supreme Court’s double-jeopardy case holds Mueller probe implications; Kavanaugh vote key

A Supreme Court case concerning double-jeopardy rules is receiving outsized attention due to its potential implications for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe.

At issue in the case heard Thursday is whether and when being tried in state and federal courts for the same crimes is permissible. Under a current constitutional exception, it has been allowed for years.

A court reversal here could be far-reaching – and represent a sea change in how state, federal and tribal criminal cases are handled.

"nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb;" It doesn't give an exception for the various government entities be they federal, state, county, or local. Hopefully, with more constitutionalists in SCOTUS, they'll start getting things straightened out.

It might not be much of an issue if the Federal Government would drop about 85,000 of it's stupid and unnecessary laws.
