If you have been accused of being involved in a crime, you’ll want to understand what’s going to happen next. There are numerous steps of a criminal investigation.

Going to Trial After a Criminal Investigation

Trial Following Criminal Investigation

A “trial” is the legal proceeding during which evidence is presented either just to a judge, or in front of a jury, for the purpose of determining guilt.

If a case is just heard before a judge it is called a “bench trial.”

Following a Crime – the Pre-Arrest Investigation

A pre-arrest investigation is done following a suspected criminal activity. Once law enforcement is made aware that a criminal activity has occurred, they must investigate what happened before an arrest can be made. Following the investigation, if law enforcement determines evidence that reveals a crime was committed, they must make steps to try and identify a suspect. Once a suspect is identified, law enforcement may arrest the suspect. Depending on where the crime occurred, law enforcement might be required to first present evidence of the crime to a prosecuting attorney.
