Criminal Defense Process in Orlando

After an arrest the first step in the criminal justice system is the initial appearance.  This will occur when a person accused is still in custody 24 hours after the arrest. The accused is brought before a Judge who determines whether based on the facts contained in the arrest report whether probable cause exists for the charge. The Judge also sets a bond amount and offers the services of the public defender for those who qualify. The initial appearance is very short and often the Judge has reviewed the arrest report prior to the accused entering the courtroom.

Don’t miss this part!

The time between initial appearance and the next court date called arraignment is typically when most of the clients hire the 850-CALL-JOE Law Firm. Hiring a competent criminal defense attorney before arraignment sends a message to the prosecution as to the accused’s responsibility, knowledge, and desire to protect themselves through the case.Once hired, our firm will immediately contact the prosecutor after being retained and work to get your side of the story in their mind.  There are always two sides to every case.  Until we speak with the prosecutor they are only seeing and hearing one side of the case and that’s not in your best interest.
