STAGES OF A CRIMINAL CASE

How a criminal case moves through court in Sarasota and Bradenton

First Appearance

If you don't bond out of jail after the initial arrest, you are brought before a Judge within 24 hours.  The judge will decide whether to set a bond and, if so, in what amount.

Arraignment

About one month after the arrest--You are told what you are being charged with and asked whether you will be entering a plea or will be hiring an attorney.

Pretrial Conference/ Case Management

About one month after the arraignment--The Judge will want to know what is happening with your case and how much time is needed.

Docket Sounding

The last main court date before the trial date.  Will it be a plea or will we be going to trial?

Trial

Do we want a jury trial or a bench trial with no jury?  Will you be testifying?  Are our witnesses ready to go?

HOW TO FIGHT - AND BEAT - A CRIMINAL CASE

 

A good criminal lawyer will expose any weakness in the state’s case - such as illegality and unconstitutional actions on the part of the police - to the defendant’s advantage.  If it is found that the police acted illegally or didn't play by the rules, it could result in charges being completely dropped.
