You've Been Charged, What Happens Next?
If you have been charged with a crime in Milwaukee County, Waukesha County, or any other county in the state of Wisconsin, it is important to understand what the criminal procedure looks like. Your case will not be done on the first court date and could even last over a year. Most court cases last between three to nine months. During that time you will have a number of court dates that can be very important to your case, and it is crucial that you understand what they are:
- Initial Appearance
- Preliminary Hearing
- Further Proceedings/Status Hearing/Pre-Trial
- Diversionary Agreements and Deferred Prosecution Agreements
- Jury Trial
