  • You have the right to remain silent

  • The first step in a Criminal Case is the arrest
  • After a suspect is arrested, they attend a hearing where they are informed of the charges against them
  • Here is the evidence, Your Honor
  • Following the hearing is an indictment, where a grand jury decides if there is probable cause
  • Agreed
  • There is probable cause 
  • After the indictment, if the grand jury decided there was probable cause, there is an arraignment 
  • We plead not guilty
  • Following the arraignment is the trial. At the end of the trial, a verdict will be reached and a sentence given 
  • Guilty!
  • Get me out of here! I'm innocent!
  • Finally, after the trial, defendants can make an appeal if they feel there was an error
