  1. This is fairly complicated. There may not be an exact overlap between the charges or the prosecuting authorities. You really need an attorney to review this.

  2. I agree with Mr. Jones. This is a complicated situation. There is more than one authority involved, and there may be more than one set of rules or laws involved, and they may overlap or even contradict each other. You need to consult an attorney that is knowledgeable about all of these things.
