The United States District Court and the US District Judge VS United States Department of Justice and US District Attorney for a district? Are these two separate from each other? Thanks
Your question is a little complicated. The United States District Court is a federal court. A US District Court judge is the judge in a federal court.
The United States Department of Justice is a federal law enforcement agency. It is headquartered in Washington D.C. and the head of the agency is Eric Holder [at least for now]. Each federal district had their own United States Attorney who oversees investigations and prosecutions for that district.
There is no such thing as a US District Attorney - the closest thing is the United States Attorney for a given district.
The US Attorney for a district investigates cases. If someone is indicted an attorney from the US Attorney's office, referred to as an Assistant United States Attorney [aka AUSA] prosecutes the case. The case is heard in a United States District Court and a US District Judge presides over the case.
The judge and the US Attorney's office are totally separate. The judges are governed by Article III of the US Constitution [the judicial branch of government], the US Attorney's office and the DOJ are both part of the Executive Branch of government.See question

An expungement is about as good as it's going to get unless you happened to be under the age of 18 in 1985.See question
I know its extremely rare and unlikely. I know that it's almost never used. All I'm wondering is if its available for Felony OR only for Misdemeanor.
It probably is technically available on a felony but I have never heard of it actually happening.See question

Some of The images you are describing are illegal under both state and federal law. You need to quit viewing them now. Contact a local criminal defense lawyer to discuss what else you may need to do in order to protect yourself.See question

My sister-in-law is 16 years old and recently went missing for over 4 days. We later found out that a 27 year old man had picked her up and taken her from Nevada to California for a long weekend without parental consent. The age of consent is 16...
Criminal courts are generally not the best place to work out family disputes. If your sister in law went willingly and has been in a relationship with this person it makes it a very difficult and unattractive case for prosecutors.See question

Whether or not its legal you are asking for problems. There are reports of being arrested for having bokkens - they were arrested for disturbing the peace. You're really setting yourself up for problems.See question
