What are federal magistrate judges?

Video Transcription:

In the federal system, there are two types of judges that you could appear in front of. The first is a federal magistrate. The magistrates handle basic procedural hearings such as a pretrial determination hearing. There is also an assigned trial judge to each magistrate. That would be the judge who would ultimately punish or sentence you, if you pled in front of them.
