Understanding Proper Court Etiquette

Proper etiquette is essential for making a good impression on other people, and this is especially true in the courtroom, especially for the defendant. The defendant is already in the courtroom with a disadvantage; this is the person who is being accused of a crime and is fighting against the charges so the jury finds him or her not guilty. While the jury and the judge deliberate and come to a decision based on the arguments brought forth from the defense and prosecution, the defendant’s appearance and overall courtroom etiquette leave an impression. Here are some helpful tips on proper courtroom etiquette, which are especially helpful for the defendant:

• Arrive a little earlier than the start time of the trial so that you can have a few moments with your lawyer.
• If the defendant ...

How Soon After the Arrest will Charges be Filed and the Defendant can Post Bail?

The U.S. Constitution says that a defendant has the right to a speedy trial. This does not mean the trial itself will be completed within a certain amount of days. It means that the time between the formal arrest and the decision of the formal charges must be a reasonable amount of time. For most states, this is a 72-hour window, but for California, it is 48 hours. So, the prosecutor has 2-3 days, depending on state law, after a defendant is arrested to deliver the charges that will be filed.

This also protects defendants from having to remain in custody and jail for a lengthy time before the trial begins. Once the charges are announced at an arraignment hearing, then the defendant can post bail to return home...

How Long can a Person be Detained by the Police

How long can the police hold a person without charging them? In many states, the police have a 72 hour window. In California, the police are allowed 48 hours to hold/ detain a person without charges being made. After 48 hours, if no charges are filed, then the police must release this person.

In this 48 hour window, the police or detectives must work closely with prosecutors. The police cannot bring charges against the arrestee. It is the prosecutor who does this. The police and detectives must provide the prosecutor with the proper and substantial evidence that a crime has occurred and that the arrestee was involved.

If the prosecutor does not bring charges within that 48 hour window, they can always bring charges against this person later on...

Every January 1st, a whole bunch of new laws go into effect in California. The new laws this year include the following:

• Minimum wage: any business that employs 26 or more people will be raising their minimum wages to $10.50, up $0.50 per hour. By 2022, it will be $15.

Just like civilians, law enforcement officers are required to securely store their handguns in a lockbox out of plain view.

It is not January 1 anymore, but you can still come up with some 2017 resolutions. It is never too late to set goals and commit to them. Whether it is something you try every year, like eating better and working out more, or something that is quite the challenge, like breaking bad habits and putting yourself in uncomfortable yet good-for-you situations.

Touching more on the latter example, say you are one to drink and drive. You have never been caught and you have never blown it, but frankly, you cannot keep doing this. So this is the year you kick that bad habit of feeling invincible when you really are not. In addition to not drinking and driving, consider forcing yourself to drink less...
