Most people are familiar with the concept of being innocent until proven guilty in the American court system, but what else do you know about criminal trials? Although you don’t need to know enough to pass the bar, you should know enough to protect yourself or a loved one in the event that you or someone you know is facing criminal charges.
This video explains what happens during a typical criminal trial procedure. The process starts with an arrest. Immediately following the arrest, bail may be set, allowing the defendant to be released until trial. The trial itself includes opening statements, witness testimony, and closing arguments. The judge or jury, depending on the case, will reach a verdict.
