About the Criminal Case Process
If you have been arrested for a criminal violation, it can be a difficult and confusing time. You probably do not know what to expect or who to turn to for help. By talking to a Bradenton criminal attorney from The Miller Law Firm, you could have a strong advocate on your side through the entire process. After the initial arrest, you will be formally charged in the arraignment. At this hearing, your bail will be set and you must enter a guilty or not guilty plea. It is very important that you have a legal representative with you at this hearing so that your bail will not be set too high. The next step in your case is the pre-trial hearing. Here a motion can be put forward to dismiss your case altogether. If this motion is not successful, you will have to go to trial. There you will either be found not guilty and let go, or you will be found guilty and sentenced. The punishments you face vary greatly depending on the crime you are convicted of.
