Criminal Case Stages
What Happens After the Arrest?
Under the 6th Amendment of the US Constitution, you have the right to a speedy trial. This means that the courts cannot jail you indefinitely between your arrest and your trial. If the courts wish to delay the onset of your trial, they must prove that they have legitimate grounds for doing so.
What’s a Defense Attorney?
Unlike prosecutors, a criminal defense lawyer may become involved at a much earlier stage in the criminal justice process. They often begin providing legal services even before criminal charges have been formally filed against the suspect. For example, they can assist and protect suspects who are being interrogated by the police or other legal authorities.
