All individuals are considered innocent until proven guilty when it comes to a criminal charge. However, that doesn’t mean that individuals suspected of committing a crime are free to walk away after being arrested. Typically, one’s guilt must be proved in the court of law.
This video discusses the steps involved in a criminal trial. After being arrested, a bail amount will be set based on the severity of the crime. Once you have undergone the arraignment and been notified of the charges brought against you, the investigations will begin in which evidence is gathered and witnesses are interviewed. During the initial hearing both the prosecution and defense will issue opening statements. Learn what to expect during the actual trial in this clip.
