This guy has just been arrested for robbing a gas station with an armed weapon. He has to make his first court appearance between 24 to 48 hours. The judge in court reviews the situation and decides if whether or not there is probable cause for arrest. The judge decides to keep him in custody
Beyond A Reasonable Doubt
Bail is set if the crime is non-violent in nature or if the suspect is not likely to run away. But this guy has a criminal record of robbing places. So he will not be set for bail. And he will be kept in jail until the court date which is April 20, 2021
The defendant pleads “guilty” so now they have to see if there is enough evidence about the case and if there is then the judge will set a trial date.
Mister Paul Daniel has plead GUILTY
This is when both sides, the defense (for the suspect) and the prosecution (for the state), gather evidence. There is money still left from the robbery. It might some of the suspect's fingerprints on them. There was also a security camera which might have some video footage of the suspect
The prosecution sometimes offers a plea bargain to the suspect. If the defense (for the suspect) accepts the bargain, the suspect agrees to plead “guilty” in exchange for a lighter sentence and there would be no trial. But if the defense has a strong case, they do not accept the plea and the trail date stands as it is.
Both the prosecution and defense argue their cases. It is up to the prosecution to prove to the jury beyond reasonable doubt (more than sure) that a crime was committed ore the defense tries to prove to the jury doubt the guilt of the accused. The defendant may be found guilty of all, some, or none of the charges.
