After jail; what to expect in the courtroom. What happens next?
The courtroom can be a scary and intimidating place, especially if you are the one facing criminal charges.
Even if it is not your first rodeo, or perhaps it is a friend or family member that has found themselves in this unenviable position, you probably have questions about what is going on and what to expect in the courtroom. We hear a lot of these types of questions;
- What will happen during the police investigation?
- Who determines what charges are filed?
- What is an arraignment?
- What can my attorney do if there was an improper search by the police?
- What is a Preliminary Hearing Conference (PHC)?
- What is a “Blind Plea”?
- Why is my attorney meeting with the District Attorney?
- Is it possible for my case to get dismissed?
- Will I have to go to trial?
Will I need to hire an attorney?
If you have been arrested on a Felony or Misdemeanor, you will likely be required by the court to hire an attorney. If you are not sure if you will need an attorney, you can ask the judge when you go in for arraignment. If your case requires that you hire an attorney, we recommend that you talk to several to find the right one for you and your case. Most attorneys will offer a free, no-obligation consultation. We have provided a partial list of local attorneys to help you get started in your search.
