California Criminal Process
The criminal process in California is similar to the criminal process throughout the United States. It usually begins with an investigation of a crime and the gathering of evidence. Once a suspect is identified, law enforcement will contact them to question them and make an arrest if necessary. The process after an arrest can be somewhat more complicated, depending on the circumstances of the alleged criminal activity. In some cases, bail may be posted and criminal proceedings may begin at once. In other cases, bail hearings will take place and pre-trial hearings may proceed before criminal proceedings can begin in court. Whichever route the criminal process follows, it is important for those who are facing criminal charges to understand their rights throughout the process so they are treated fairly and justly according to state laws.
What Are My Rights in a Criminal Case?
When facing criminal charges, it is important to remember that you have certain rights throughout the criminal process. In criminal cases, the accused has a right to remain silent, a right to an attorney, and - in some cases - a right to a jury trial. Additionally, criminal defendants have the right to be notified of criminal charges and informed about their Miranda rights before being questioned by law enforcement agents or police officers. All criminal defendants must also receive a speedy trial during which they are allowed to present evidence on their behalf. These rights provide essential protection for citizens when facing criminal charges and uphold the due process of law. To ensure your rights are being upheld, it's important to have a Victorville criminal defense attorney on your side!
