Hi, My name is Philip. I am an attorney with over 16 years experience. Hopefully I can help you with your legal question.
I am sorry for this dilemma
I will try and answer your questions in order
When this person is charged, is he taken into custody. I am interested in the exact legal steps once charges have been made. Can you assist me in answering these preliminary questions?
When a person is charged with a crime, the next step is typically arrest.
In order to bring an accused to trial
, the first step is for the prosecution to file criminal
Once the charges have been filed, the next step is to bring the accused in for arraignment. Arraignment is the first stage of the trial where the accused is formally advised of the charges against them, and they are advised of their rights (the right to remain silent, the right to an attorney to assist in the case, etc)
If the accused is in jail at the time the charges are filed, then it is a simple matter to bring them to arraignment.
If the accused is not in jail then the next step, after charges are filed, would be an arrest.
Once the accused is arrested the court
will consider if bond is appropriate or not and will set the trial schedule at the arraignment.
BotXXXXX XXXXXne; what you describe I would expect this accused in this case to be arrested and brought to his arraignment. At that point his attorney can take steps to try and secure bail as well as start the process to prepare for the trial
Please let me know if you have more questions...happy to assist if I can
