What to Expect After an Arrest in Idaho

  1. Many cases start with an arrest.
  2. After the person is brought into custody, they attend an arraignment. The arraignment is where the defendant hears specific charges being brought against him or her, and can plead guilty, not guilty, or stand silent.
  3. The process may then lead to a meeting between the prosecution and the defense called a pre-trial conference. This is where your criminal defense attorney can discuss the strengths and weaknesses of your case, as well as factors like your good reputation or reliable history.
  4. Your attorney may also engage in plea bargaining, where he can negotiate with the prosecutor to have charges dropped or reduced. Many cases end in a plea bargain.
  5. Those that do not may proceed to trial.
