  • Assembly Line Justice Case Analysis

    courtroom players. We have all watched series such as Law and Order, CSI, American Crime, etc., but they give us a false sense of what an actual courtroom setup looks like. Unlike these shows, there are various steps that must be taken before the defendant is prosecuted. There is the arrest, initial appearance, bail is set, either a grand jury or preliminary hearing is conducted, arraignment occurs, along with all pre-trial motions being heard before trial, a trial is then started, a sentence is given, and sometimes the defendant appeals the charge.

  • Sample Community Meeting Review

    It was a positive experience for me. When you are on the other end it is easy to get frustrated at how long everything seems to take, or how long you wait around, only for the hearing to be over in two minutes. However, there are a lot of moving parts to everything, and as far as I could tell everyone was working to the best of their abilities.
