How Does the Criminal Justice System Work?

Arrest:
This is where the process starts. Once you’re arrested, booked and charged with a crime, you begin to move through the criminal justice system. During this stage, you should call The Craig Law Firm right away.

Arraignment:
Your arraignment is the first time you will appear in court. This stage includes bail decisions and identifying you and the charges against you. We can help you through this by arguing for bail reductions and asserting your defense.

Trial:
During the trial, your criminal defense lawyer will argue your case and if needed, present evidence on your behalf. The prosecution will also make their case, and a jury will move for conviction or acquittal of the charges.

Sentencing:
If you are convicted, the presiding judge will issue your sentence. We will still be in your corner if you are convicted, fighting for a reduced sentence and helping you understand the consequences you’re facing.
