Although most people never expect to be charged with a crime, there can come a time when that can happen. These types of charges can range form warrants being issued for aid traffic tickets to individuals filing lawsuits against you. The best time to prepare for being charged with a crime is before it ever happens.
Since lawsuits and arrests can move quickly, it is best to understand basic events that lead up to and constitute being charged with a crime prior to being charged. If you are knowledgeable about events beforehand, process can go easier and hopefully, be less intimidating.
No matter which type of crime you are charged with, proceedings will usually happen in a predetermined way. First, a warrant will put for your arrest. If a warrant is issued against you, you will usually be notified of warrant by being served. Being served means that a police officer will locate you and deliver your warrant papers in person. On rare occasions, a person is arrested before being served with a warrant. In these cases, arresting officer must show warrant papers within a reasonable amount of time after arrest has been made.
After you have been arrested, you will be taken to police station to be booked. Being booked means that you will be fingerprinted and a file will be opened regarding your case. After being booked, you will generally spend a short amount of time in jail while you await your initial hearing and arrange payment for bail.
While you are in jail, you are allowed to contact an attorney. Any person charged with a crime has right to seek legal representation. It is very important that you at least meet with an attorney before your initial hearing. If you cannot afford an attorney, or you have not chosen an attorney yet, court can and must appoint a lawyer for you.
