Process of a Criminal Case
A legal process has to take place before you're convicted of a crime. First, the police must investigate for evidence that you committed a crime. If they feel they've gathered enough evidence, then they file a formal criminal complaint against you.
You then attend a preliminary hearing where the police present the evidence against you and the judge decides whether there is sufficient evidence to charge you. If the judge decides to move forward with the case, the case moves to a county court.
This is when a defense attorney and the accused look over the evidence. The defense attorney puts together a defense to help the accused get a not-guilty verdict, reduced charges, or dropped charges.
Often, the defense and the prosecution come to an agreement in a plea bargain. Otherwise, the case goes to trial where either a judge or jury decide on the accused's verdict.
