Stages of an typical Criminal Case

ARREST or NOTICE TO APPEAR

In the case of arrest, a hearing to modify bond may needed.

In the case of a Notice to Appear, you will have a court date and time of your next hearing.

REFERRAL FOR PROSECUTION

The case will be referred to the State Attorney’s Office to a prosecutor for referral to file charges. The prosecutor will examine a police report and determine which offense to file or if a charge will be filed. This is a critical time in which your attorney should be contacting the prosecution.

ARRAIGNMENT

If the State Attorney's office pursues charges, you will be given a notice for an Arraignment in court. At the arraignment, the judge will inform you of your charge and ask you if you intend to hire an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, the judge will consider appointing a Public Defender to represent you at that time.

PRETRIAL CONFERENCE

Prior to this date, you and your attorney should receive and review evidence, conduct any necessary investigations and contact witnesses. If you are ready to proceed to a jury trial, at the Pretrial Conference date a trial date will be selected for a later time.

JURY SELECTION & TRIAL

Depending on the charges being fought, jury selection and trial may take a single day, multiple days or multiple weeks.
