I strongly advise to obtain a lawyer to assist you with this matter. If you need specific legal advice, you should consult privately with an attorney. This answer does not contain specific legal advice. Ultimately, whether the police investigate and whether the prosecutor will issue charges is a matter of their particular policies and whether, in their view, pursuing the matter would be worth the time and expense. Obviously, if a person is already serving a sentence in particular state or if it's a state/federal issue, the other prosecuting authority may be less inclined to spend the considerable amount of money and time involved for a similar result. For example, a notable portion of pending state-related charges tend to get dismissed if a person is looking at more serious federal charges for similar conduct. However, ultimately, it's a matter of local policies and these particular issues are examined on a case-by-case basis.
