What to look for on Smart Talk Wednesday, June 27, 2018:
The Federal Middle District of Pennsylvania spans 33 counties, from Pike County in the East to Cameron County in the West. It covers almost half of the state and includes about 3.2 million Pennsylvanians.
David Freed is the United States Attorney for the Middle District of Pennsylvania. U.S. Attorneys are responsible for representing their districts in addition to serving as the administrative leaders. They are also the head federal law enforcement officers in their districts.
Drug trafficking has been a very significant issue in the Middle District Court recently. Other topics frequently addressed by the court include child pornography, financial fraud and firearms offenses. Often cases involve both drugs and gun violence.
On Wednesday’s Smart Talk, Freed joins us to discuss federal crime in Central Pennsylvania. Illegal immigration is also a topic we’ll discuss.
