What Happens During a Criminal Trial?

Felony attorneys practicing near Denver, CO typically spend plenty of time preparing their clients to appear in court. A criminal trial begins with the selection of a jury. Then, the criminal defense attorney and the prosecutor will each make an opening statement. Both sides have the opportunity to call witnesses and ask questions while the witnesses are under oath. When the felony defense attorney calls his or her witness, the prosecutor will have a chance to question that witness afterward—and vice versa.

Defendants can hear more about this process by watching this featured video. It explains that all criminal defendants have the right to a fair and speedy trial, and that some of them may be released on bail during the trial. The video also provides a brief introduction to closing arguments, jury deliberations, and verdicts.
