Being Arrested for a Criminal Offense

After you are arrested for a criminal offense, you will be taken to the police station and placed in a cell. You will then be read your rights and given a chance to call a lawyer. Once you have spoken to a lawyer, you will be interviewed by the police and be required to answer personal questions. After the interview, you will either be released on bail or held in custody pending a bail hearing.

The judge will determine whether you should be released on bail pending trial at the bail hearing. Your lawyer will help you argue for your release on bail. If you are granted bail, you will be required to post bail and follow certain conditions until your trial. If you are denied bail, you will be held in custody until your trial.

Your lawyer will then prepare your defense and represent you at trial. If you are convicted, your lawyer will help you appeal the conviction.

You’ve just been arrested for a criminal offense. You’re probably feeling scared, confused and overwhelmed. What happens now?

You have the right to choose your criminal lawyer and will be allowed for reasonable phone calls. You and your defense lawyer will meet and discuss your case before the bail hearing, which actually takes place after 48 hours of being in custody. When you’re taken into court, the judge will review your case and decide whether you will be released or held in custody until the day of the trial.

A plea of guilty means that you are admitting that you committed the crime for which you have been charged. It also means that you are giving up your right to a trial and will accept whatever punishment is handed down by the court.

A plea of not guilty means that you are telling the court that you did not commit the crime you have been charged with. The court will then set a date for your trial, at which time you will have the opportunity to present your defense and argue why you should not be found guilty. If the jury finds you not guilty, you will be free to go. However, if they find you guilty, you may be sentenced to prison or other penalties.
