Criminal Law Cases FAQs
The complexity of a case will affect how long it takes. A simple misdemeanor might be resolved within a few weeks or a month, while a felony case might last for several months or a year. If the prosecution makes a reasonable plea offer early in the process, the case will end much sooner than if it goes to trial.
Very few criminal cases actually go to trial. The charges may be dismissed or dropped, or the defense may succeed in a pre-trial motion that essentially destroys the prosecution’s case. Most often, however, the two sides will reach a plea bargain in which the defendant pleads guilty or no contest in exchange for a lesser charge or lighter sentence.
A criminal case usually takes priority over a civil case resulting from the same sequence of events. A defendant may try to delay the civil case until the criminal case is resolved so that the prosecution cannot use information from the civil case to support the charges.
Search and seizure rules apply whenever law enforcement conducts a search that invades a citizen’s legitimate expectation of privacy. The expectation of privacy must be objectively reasonable under the circumstances.
A search warrant is a document signed by a judge that allows the police to conduct a search in a certain place for certain items.
