Pima County Attorney Barbara LaWall has said she will pursue charges pertaining to both the federal employees and civilian victims because there is no guarantee Jared Lee Loughner will be convicted in federal court or that his conviction would be upheld on appeal.

LaWall has pointed out that federal prosecutors are pursuing Loughner under federal statutes alleging the victims were killed because they were at a federal event or engaging in federal business.

State prosecutors will pursue Loughner under regular murder and attempted-murder charges, LaWall said. In addition, she intends to seek an indictment for the dozens of people who may not have been shot but were endangered.
