FLORIDA CRIMINAL PROCESS

The criminal process in Florida starts with the initial investigation by law enforcement. If enough evidence is gathered, a person will be arrested and charged with a criminal offense. This can then lead to a criminal trial where a jury or judge will decide whether the defendant is guilty or innocent. If found guilty, the court will determine the punishment, which can range from probation to incarceration. The criminal process also includes post-conviction options such as appeals and sentence reductions. Throughout the criminal process, defendants have rights such as Miranda warnings and access to an attorney. It is important for individuals to understand their rights and the criminal process in order to protect themselves and ensure fair treatment under the law.
