Criminal Cases

A criminal case is an action brought by a government to penalize a violation of the criminal laws. In either a misdemeanor or a felony case you will have an initial appearance. At this appearance you will be served with a criminal complaint that outlines the charge, the probable cause supporting the charge, and the penalty.  Adjournments cannot be granted in criminal cases unless it is deemed an emergency by the court.
