State and Federal Court System
There are two kinds of courts within the United States; those courts are state and federal courts. The establishments of state and federal courts are local and state courts are established by the state. Federal courts are established by the U. S. Constitution.

The Bill of Rights, (which are the first 10 amendments) as well as other amendments that states the Constitution, will tell certain procedural laws that show how substantive laws are administered. The federal statues are put into effect by Congress of the U S and those statues are put into effect by state legislations. There are city councils or other municipalities, which create laws that the council refers to as city ordinances. The criminal statues or certain states, as well as federal criminal statues and its definition of crimes be bound together a long with penalties that associate with them could be found the penal codes of every jurisdiction.
The function of those systems are viewed as being complicated, there are various sources of laws and courts of one system and they are often referenced or interpreted so that laws may be applied of another jurisdiction. With that in mind another court may have sovereignty to hear a certain case. A federal judiciary and individual state judicial system are built like a pyramid, beginning with entry level court with state and federal level courts. Those courts are trial courts were witnesses are subpoenaed to testify or evidence will be presented and will be used to help decide issues based on facts.

When federal laws are violated it is considered a crime in all states. There are certain violations that will cause federal and state laws to be violated and local ordinance, such as the drug laws, this affect the will cause overlapping in the jurisdiction. Those violations will cause a confusion of whom and which jurisdiction has the authority to prosecute the violator.
