What Are the Steps in Florida's Judicial Process?
In Florida, the process you'll go through to defend your criminal case depends on your specific circumstances. Generally, it includes an arrest, a first appearance, an arraignment, motions hearings, pretrial hearings, plea negotiations, and a trial.
The things you say and do and the decisions you make at every step in the process can affect the results of your case. Even if you haven't been formally charged, the statements you make during an initial interrogation might be used to prove your guilt later on. It's important to know your rights and know that you can have an attorney representing you from the very beginning.
