How Do Criminal Cases Work?

A criminal case usually starts when the police cite or arrest someone and write a report. The prosecutor then decides whether to file charges and charges the crime as a felony or a misdemeanor.

The arraignment is the first time the defendant appears in court. The person accused of the crime and their criminal defense attorney will receive a complaint stating the charges against them during the arraignment. What happens next depends on if your case is a felony or misdemeanor.
