Criminal Law Proceedings

Although the rules often vary, most criminal proceedings follow these general steps:

Stop/Investigation

  • for the police to Stop and iSearch you they must have a reasonable belief that you committed a crime.

Search

  • if a police officer believes that evidence is needed to further the investigation they must get a search warrant
  • to get a search warrant the officer must provide the issuing judge with probable cause, which usually means that there is enough facts to support the assumption that there is sufficient evidence present at the scene
  • where they are going to search
  • a police officer does not need a warrant if there are exigent circumstances, which means there is an extreme need for personal or public safety to search the premises

Interrogation

  • a person can be questioned as long as their constitutional rights are protected Arrest
  • the police must have probable cause to arrest an individual, unless the crime was committed in the officer’s presence
  • the person must be afforded the constitutional right to obtain an attorney and to remain silent until speaking with that attorney

Charge/release/bail

  • the police have a very short time after arrest in which to charge or release you
  • if the police decide to charge you, a complaint or indictment will be filed, and at an arraignment you will hear the charges against you.
  • at this point you have the option to enter a plea of guilty, not guilty or no contest
  • in some cases a preliminary hearing may also be held
  • there may also be settlement conferences set to try to reach a plea bargain

Trial

  • the constitution guarantees the right to a trial by jury
  • the jury will make a finding of guilty, not guilty or acquittal Sentencing Hearing
  • The Court will determined the length and type of punishment you will receive
