The Criminal Court Process in California
At Arro Law, we receive numerous questions about the criminal court process and the order in which it takes place in California. The following is a brief outline and description of this process. For further answers about the criminal court process and how it affects your case specifically, contact our experienced criminal defense lawyers.
- The Arraignment. The arraignment is the first court appearance. Here the defendant learns his or her charges, constitutional rights and has the option to enter a plea. If the defendant is in custody, this is when bail is set;
- If the case is a misdemeanor, discovery begins. This is the exchange of information and preparation for trial. Pretrial motions are filed. There may be a plea or trial may be set;
- If the case is a felony, there is a preliminary hearing to decide if there is enough evidence to proceed with a trial. If so, there is a second arraignment and option to enter a plea. The case may proceed towards trial and pretrial motions;
- Defendants have the right to a trial by a jury of their peers. Before trial, there is an option to plea or to proceed with a trial by jury or a trial by a judge;
- In a jury trial, the lawyers choose a jury;
- The trial starts with opening statements;
- Then, there is a presentation of evidence;
- Finally, there are closing arguments;
- Afterward, the jury may find the defendant guilty or not guilty. If the verdict is guilty, guilt is required beyond a reasonable doubt;
- If the defendant is guilty, there is a sentencing.
- A guilty defendant has a right to an appeal for specific reasons.
