Understanding Criminal Law in the State of California
“When the police arrest someone [in California] (the defendant), they take him or her to jail. Then, 1 of 3 things happens: 1) The defendant is released if the prosecutor – usually the district attorney or the city attorney – decides not to file charges; 2) The defendant posts bail (also called a “bond”) or is released based on a promise to appear in court at a later date for arraignment; or, 3) the defendant stays in jail. [In cases 1 and 2], law enforcement officers transport the defendant to the court for arraignment.”
The most crucial step you can take following your arrest is contacting sound legal assistance. Attorney Funk can provide such, and more.
In the state of California, district attorneys (DAs) and federal prosecutors will tend to file indictments or charges only if their chances of winning outweigh their chances of defeat. Furthermore, the cost of filing charges is passed on to California taxpayers. This means that if you’ve been accused of a crime and have formal charges pending against you, then the prosecuting attorneys must feel that there is a solid and substantial case against you.
