What happens when a person is arrested?

After you are arrested, you will be taken before a District Court commissioner who determines if probable cause exists to charge you. The commissioner:

• Ensures that you understand the charges against you and the possible penalties,

• Advises you of your right to an attorney,

• Advises you of your responsibilities in obtaining an attorney,

• Decides whether you should be detained or released pending trial,

• and determines whether bail should be set.

What court will hear my case?

The District Court hears most cases involving motor vehicle violations, criminal misdemeanors and certain felonies. The circuit court hears cases involving serious felony crimes.

For further details and information, you must consult with your attorney.
