Florida Criminal Procedure

Criminal cases are initiated by an arrest and are resolved by a dismissal, plea, or trial.

The events that take place in between are governed by Florida law and the Florida Rules of Criminal Procedure.

  1. Arrests
  2. First Appearance
  3. Bond and Release
  4. Formal Charges
  5. Arraignment
  6. Preparing Your Defense
  7. Court Appearances
  8. Pleas
  9. Trial
  10. Sentencing
  11. Penalties
  12. Penalty Enhancements
  13. Appeals
  14. Violation of Probation

Importantly, every criminal case is unique and rarely are any two cases resolved in the exact same manner.
