Criminal Process in Illinois

Understanding the criminal process in Illinois is essential for anyone facing criminal charges. The process typically involves the following stages:

  • Arrest: The process begins with an arrest by law enforcement officers who have probable cause to believe a crime has been committed.
  • Charging: The prosecutor reviews the evidence and decides whether to file formal charges against the defendant.
  • Bail Hearing: If charges are filed, a bail hearing may be held to determine whether the defendant can be released on bail while awaiting trial.
  • Pre-Trial Proceedings: This stage involves plea negotiations, discovery, and other pre-trial activities to resolve the case.
  • Trial: If a plea agreement cannot be reached, the case proceeds to trial, where evidence is presented and arguments are made before a judge or jury.
  • Sentencing: If the defendant is found guilty or pleads guilty, a sentencing hearing is held to determine the appropriate punishment.
  • Appeals: If convicted, the defendant can appeal the verdict or sentence.
