After the questioner the police officer will have to build a case with the evidences gathered and send a case with the evidences to CPS (Crown Prosecution Services). Then CPS could state whether it’s enough evidences gathered to take the person to court or it can state that there is not enough evidences. That where it comes to the bail. (www.findlaw.co.uk) The bail can be granted or denied it all depends what is the offence and whether the person can be dangerous if goes back to the society/community.

An appeal is a request to a higher (appellate) court for that court to review and change the decision of a lower court. The defendant may challenge the conviction itself or may appeal the trial court's sentencing decision without actually challenging the underlying conviction (Nolo, 2014). An appeal is not are retrial. In juvenile court juveniles must wait until their case has concluded in adult court before they can appeal the fact they were transferred there in the first place. In adult cases they can have a retrial with a different jury to see if they get a better sentence.
If bail has not previously been set, it is often set at the same time as the arraignment. Bail (or "bond") is often granted in a standard amount, depending upon the crime charged. In civil trials, one person or party has reached the conclusion that their outstanding disagreement or dispute with another individual or entity can no longer be resolved through informal damage plea bargaining without the intervention of the judicial system and a civil trial. To initiate the process of a civil trial, individuals are required to file a complaint within the court of appropriate jurisdiction. Jurisdiction is determined by assessing whether the court receiving the complaint has power over a defendant and whether the property involved in a dispute is within the given jurisdiction.
Although the penalties for burglary are harsh, it's often possible to get the charges reduced or dismissed. Because of legal technicalities and difficulties of proof, prosecutors frequently agree to settle cases for lesser charges. And burglary cases that go to jury trial, with an effective defense, can result in a "not guilty" verdict. Just because you are accused of or prosecuted for burglary does not mean that you must be convicted of burglary.

● The exclusionary rule is the main remedy that will be focused on throughout the remainder of this book. It requires that evidence obtained in violation of certain constitutional amendments (notably the Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, and Fourteenth) be excluded from the criminal trial. Exceptions to the exclusionary rule have been recognized in cases in which (1) the police acted in good faith but nonetheless violated the Constitution and (2) the prosecutor sought to impeach a witness at trial by pointing to contradictions in his or her out-of-court statements, even if such statements were obtained in an
They also deal with both way offences which can be tried in both magistrates and or crown court. Indictable offences are referred to crown court after the accused appear before the magistrates to confirm their name and charges. Magistrates’ courts also deal with family and youth courts which may include adoptions, maintenance payments and care proceedings. In youth courts the public are not allowed in apart from only those directly involved in the case. 95%of criminal offences are tried and dealt with in magistrates’ court.
At this time if the defendant chooses to have a counsel present, the counsel has to be present them from the beginning of the defendant’s court proceedings, through the end of the initial appearance through the appeal, unless the defendant chooses to waive there rights. This is governed by federal and local courts because in some cases there appears to be multiple arrests, and because of this Joint Representation is possible. This allows defendants to be represented by the same attorney’s. Sometimes the court orders separate cases tried to bring in a single indictment. Afterwards the arraignment is opened in court to make sure the defendant has a copy of their indictment, after the indictment is read and the defendant is asked to give a plea whether guilty or not guilty.
Judges also deal with the issue of bail once established that there is enough evidence to hold a criminal trial against the defendant during the preliminary hearing. Judges decide on whether to grant bail, and if so at what amount and on what conditions. If any of the conditions are broken by the defendant, the judge can also revoke bail and issue a warrant for his or her arrest. Once the criminal or civil trial has begun, the judge presides over the courtroom (Meyer & Grant, 2003). When the jury reaches a verdict of guilty, the judge is responsible for following established legal guidelines during sentencing.
If the magistrate feel that offence needs a stronger punishment they will pass it to the Crown Court(leeds.ac.uk/law/Hamlyn/courtsys.html). The Second criminal court is the Youth Courts. This is a special type of magistrate court of young people between the age of 10-18 years old (Gov.uk/court/youth-courts).
