Competencies Addressed in This Assignment
Competency 3: Illustrate the processing of criminal court cases.
Competency 5: Communicate effectively in writing.
The criminal justice process can vary slightly from one state to another as well as from the adult system to the juvenile system but the basic process remains the same, and individual rights under the constitution remain the same in all states at the adult level. For example, many states refer to the first appearance as arraignment, while others use terms such as initial appearance.
No matter how they describe it, they all prohibit law enforcement agencies from confining suspects indefinitely, without judicial oversight. The time within which the initial appearance must take place varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction—and is not always clear. Some state laws specify the time frame, while others nebulously ban “‘unnecessary delay’ after arrest” (NOLO Law for All, n.d.). The end result of this part of the process is the same regardless of what term is applied to it.
