Overview of the Criminal Court Process
The California criminal court system is often viewed as a maze. Once you find yourself in it, it can be challenging to navigate your way around and find a way out. If you are unfamiliar with the laws and court rules, it can be downright overwhelming. When you hire a Victorville criminal defense lawyer, you have an advocate on your side who cares about your future and how you feel during this process. More importantly, you have an advocate who can explain the criminal justice process and provide you with an aggressive defense for real results. Generally, the criminal court process is as follows.

Investigation: Unless a law enforcement officer saw you commit an alleged crime, they must conduct an investigation before your arrest. During their investigation, they might want to question you or request to search you or your property. Having an attorney on your side early on in this process can prove invaluable. They can help ensure your rights are protected during any searches or questioning. They might also be able to work with the police or prosecutors to stop you from being arrested or prevent criminal charges from being filed.

Charges and Arrest: If there is enough evidence to prove your guilt, you could be arrested. You will be subject to a search at this time. If a cop saw you commit a crime, you could be arrested right then and there. If no one saw you commit a crime, they may show up at your place of employment, home, or some other place with a warrant for your arrest. After an arrest, it’s up to a prosecutor to determine whether to file charges against you. If not, you’ll be released. Suppose the prosecutor determines that there is evidence to charge you. In that case, you could be released on bail or held in custody while waiting for an arraignment.

Arraignment: An arraignment is your first appearance in court after being arrested. During this court appearance, you will be read the charges against you, your rights will be explained, and you’ll have the opportunity to enter a plea to the charge. Usually, it’s ill-advised to enter into any plea without first speaking to a skilled Victorville criminal defense lawyer.

Bail: Your bail might be discussed at your arraignment, or you might have a separate bail hearing. Depending on your charges and other factors, the judge could release you without bail, set bail, or deny bail. If bail is set, you must remain in jail until the bail is met.

Pre-trail: During the pretrial process, the work happens on your criminal case. Your criminal defense attorney and the district attorney’s office exchange evidence during a process known as discovery. Various motions can be filed at this time. Whether or not specific evidence can be admitted at trial will be determined during this time as well. Your attorney might be able to arrange a plea deal during this time. If not, and there is enough evidence for a trial, the next step is to go to trial.

Trial, Sentencing, and Appeals: Your case will proceed to trial. A jury or a judge will determine your legal guilt or innocence. If you are found guilty, your sentencing will likely take place separately at a later date. Depending on the outcome and circumstances of your trial, you may be eligible to seek an appeal. This is something you can discuss with your Victorville criminal defense attorney.
