Therefore, developing knowledge of the criminal process beyond TV dramas and movies is vital for an individual’s ability to advocate for themselves and for others in their community. This presentation provides a comprehensive look at Criminal Court from arrest to trial to appeal, elucidating possible outcomes and identifying key moments, terms, and ideas in the criminal process.
