Arizona Criminal Trial Process
The criminal process in Arizona is carried out by both criminal and civil courts. For criminal cases, criminal court has jurisdiction over both misdemeanors and felonies. Plaintiffs in criminal cases are usually the state or federal government while defendants are individuals or organizations accused of criminal conduct. The criminal trial process begins with police investigation of a crime, which may lead to a criminal charge and arrest of a suspect. If the case goes to criminal court, the district attorney will decide whether to file formal charges against the defendant. During criminal proceedings, both the defense and prosecution present evidence and witnesses in order to prove their respective cases.
After all evidence is presented, the judge then makes a ruling on guilt or innocence based on the legal standards for conviction established by Arizona state law. If found guilty, sentencing will take place as directed by statute or at the discretion of the court depending on severity of offense. Any appeals to decisions made by criminal court must be filed with the appropriate appellate court. Understanding this process is paramount for anyone facing criminal charges or otherwise involved in criminal proceedings in Arizona. This will help to ensure that proper procedures are followed, maximizing opportunities for success throughout proceedings.
