Criminal Defense Process

While no two cases are exactly alike, criminal cases in Chicago follow a specific 12-step process, outlined here:

  • Investigation
  • Warrant
  • Arrest
  • Processing
  • Bond
  • Preliminary Hearing/Indictment
  • Arraignment
  • Discovery
  • Negotiations
  • Motions
  • Trial
  • Sentencing

Investigation

Every Chicago area criminal case begins with an investigation. Sometimes, an investigation only takes a few minutes, as in the case of a police officer personally witnessing a traffic violation, a battery, a theft, or any crime in progress. Other times, an investigation may take weeks, months or even years to complete. Police and prosecutors may need to interview witnesses, subpoena bank records, employ electronic surveillance of the suspect, compare fingerprints, test blood spatter evidence, analyze recovered DNA, order an autopsy or conduct a forensic examination of a gun or bullets. One police officer may be involved, or a whole team of detectives and investigators may be assigned to the case, depending on the complexity. But only once the police have determined that there is “probably cause” to believe that a crime has been committed should they proceed further.

Warrant

When the Police are called to the scene of a crime in Chicago, an arrest often occurs immediately on the spot. But there are many circumstances where the accused is nowhere to be found or has left the jurisdiction or even the country. In other situations, the police may have conducted a long-term investigation and have only recently decided that “Probable Cause” exists to make an arrest. At such a point, the police will typically go to a judge and request the issuance of a warrant which will then permit them to arrest the accused. The police officer will explain to the judge what the nature of the charges are, what their basic evidence is against the person and the extent of the accused offender’s criminal record if any. When a warrant for arrest is issued, a judge will also typically set a bail amount at the same time. Once the defendant is arrested, he or she will need to post that amount of money in order to be released from police custody.

Arrest

Once it has been determined that “Probable Cause” exists to believe that a crime has been committed, the accused is arrested. Sometimes, the arrest is immediate while at other times a warrant for the defendant is issued and the person is taken into custody at a later time. But what is an arrest exactly? Basically, an arrest occurs whenever a reasonable person would feel that he or she is no longer free to leave the presence of a police authority. When you have been handcuffed, you’re clearly not free to leave. When a Chicago Police officer announces “Stop right there! You’re under arrest!”, you’re definitely under arrest. The same is obviously also true if the officer unholsters a weapon or taser and instructs you to comply with an order, as no one would feel free to leave under such circumstances. In any event, once a person has been arrested, they are typically taken to the station for processing.

Processing

After an arrest, the accused is usually transported to a Chicago Police District Station or other local police department for processing, a process also known as “booking”. At this time, the accused will be asked to provide basic information including their full name, address and date of birth. While in custody, he or she will also be instructed to pose for a booking photograph (“mug shot”) and have fingerprint images taken, usually as a digital scan. The “booking officer” will then submit the fingerprints for a LEADS background check to determine the person’s criminal background. This is the most important (and sometimes most time-consuming) part of the booking procedure because before releasing the accused, it must be determined whether there are any outstanding arrest warrants stemming from other criminal matters in Chicago or elsewhere. If any active arrest warrants are found, the defendant may be held in custody for further action.

Bond

Except in the most serious of cases such as capital murder, all other persons charged with traffic, misdemeanor or felony crimes are entitled to have a reasonable bail amount set on their case. Only after a bail amount has been posted will the defendant then be released from custody and be given a “bond slip” which serves as a receipt for the money posted, as well as a reminder of what date they will later need to appear in court. Depending on the charge, sometimes the bond will require no money be posted at all (called an “I Bond”), while other times the bail amount may require the posting of hundreds, thousands or even millions of dollars. For certain traffic and criminal matters, the Chicago Police are authorized to accept the bail amount at the station and immediately release the defendant from custody, while for other types of cases such as domestic battery, Illinois law requires that the accused be brought before a judge for the bail amount to be determined in court. A failure to appear in court after posting of bail may result in a forfeiture of the bail money.

Preliminary Hearing/Indictment

If a person has been charged with a felony crime (rather than a lower misdemeanor or traffic offense) in Chicago or elsewhere, then there is an extra step in the criminal process. Because felonies are the most serious of crimes in Illinois, this step requires a finding of “probable cause” to believe that a crime was committed by the defendant before the case can proceed further. The Cook County State’s Attorney (or other county prosecutor) has the discretion of whether to proceed by way of indictment or preliminary hearing. If by indictment, the prosecutor will typically have his police officer testify briefly in front a group of people from the community, called a Grand Jury, who will then decide whether they believe a crime was committed. On the other hand, if by preliminary hearing, the judge will decide the question after both the prosecutor and defense attorney have had an opportunity to examine the witnesses. Although these two processes are different, neither is more serious than the other.

Arraignment

Although a bond hearing or preliminary hearing may have already taken place, the arraignment is considered the first “true” court date for a case, whether traffic or criminal. It’s the date where the defendant is entitled to hear what all of the charges against him or her really are. Although many people “waive” their right to have all their charges read at that time, it’s every defendant’s right to have each and every charge against them read aloud in open court if they so choose. Then, after the charges have been read, the judge will ask the defendant how they wish to plead. Although it’s possible for the accused to plead guilty at their arraignment, it’s highly unusual as nearly 100% of all defendants plead “Not Guilty” at this point, regardless of whether they are considering entering a different plea later. At the arraignment, the judge will also usually advise defendants that they need to secure the services of a Chicago criminal attorney, such as those offered by the legal team at Mitchell S. Sexner & Associates LLC.

Discovery

Once the defendant has hired an attorney, it’s time to determine what incriminating evidence the Chicago Police or other department actually has against him or her. Only then can a defendant make an informed decision about what path to take in their criminal case. Everyone accused of a crime is entitled to see such evidence and this process of sharing information with the Cook County State’s Attorney or other prosecutor is called discovery. Even things (and especially things) that the police have discovered that tend to prove the innocence of the accused (called “exculpatory evidence”) must be turned over. Discovery materials commonly include police reports, squad car videos, police station videos, body cam, photographs, witness statements, confessions, phone records, and computer records. But in short, the defendant is usually entitled to virtually anything and everything that the State has in their possession that bears on the criminal charges placed against them.

Negotiations

After the defendant has received Discovery from the prosecutor and had a chance to review it, the defense attorney is now in a position to enter into negotiations with the State’s Attorney to discuss the possibility of an agreement or deal. Although sometimes a defendant won’t wish to engage in negotiations, it’s generally accepted that there’s usually little downside in doing so. That’s because conversations with a prosecutor, whether in Chicago or elsewhere in Illinois, are “not binding” on the defendant. This means that regardless of how extensive the negotiations, there will be no deal until the defendant agrees to accept that agreement in open court. Another way to work out an agreement is to bring the Judge into the negotiations with what is called a “402 Conference”. In this process, the Judge would hear from both the defense lawyer and prosecutor in private, and then indicate what sentence would be given if the defendant chose to enter a plea. This procedure is also non-binding on the defendant.

Motions

Depending on the criminal defense attorney’s case strategy, the filing of certain motions may be a good idea. A motion is a document that’s filed with the court asking the judge to take certain actions to help the defendant’s case in some way. For instance, a “Motion to Reduce Bail” is often filed to lower the amount of money necessary to be released from custody. A “Motion to Quash Arrest and Suppress Evidence” is also commonly filed in both criminal and traffic cases in Chicago and other cities. Such a motion asks the Judge to throw out any mention of certain evidence (a gun, drugs, computer data, etc.) because it’s alleged that the police improperly searched, arrested or investigated the defendant and that to allow the use of such evidence at trial would be unfair. If this type of motion is granted, it may greatly increase the defendant’s chances for a “Not Guilty” verdict or even result in the complete dismissal of charges.

Trial

If negotiations have not resulted in an acceptable offer and if pre-trial motions have not forced a dismissal of the charges, then a trial may be necessary. In Chicago and across country, every defendant has a constitutional right to a trial if he or she so chooses. A trial is a proceeding in which the prosecutor presents evidence to the Court to demonstrate the guilt of the accused. The defendant, typically through their attorney, also has the option of presenting evidence to refute the State’s assertions. There are two types of trials. A bench trial (also know as a trial by judge) refers to a trial in which the judge hears all the evidence, rules on all motions, and then alone decides whether the evidence supports a finding of guilt. In a jury trial (12 people selected from the community), although the judge still rules on motions and conducts the trial proceedings, it is the jury who ultimately decides whether guilt exists. In either type of trial however, the burden of proof is always on the State to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

Sentencing

If after a trial the defendant has been found Not Guilty, he or she will be immediately released from custody and their bond refunded. But if on the other hand there has been a finding of Guilt, there remains one more step in the criminal process, that being sentencing. Depending on the case, some Judges in Chicago and across Illinois will proceed immediately to sentencing, while other times the sentencing will be put off until later in the future, with the defendant being either released on bond or held in custody until that time. Sentencing refers to the final decision by the judge about what and how much punishment should be administered. In making such a decision, the law directs a judge to look at such things as a defendant’s prior criminal background, the severity of the offense, whether it was a violent crime, whether someone was injured, and so on. Depending on the sentence, a defendant may then be released or taken into custody to serve a jail term. If the defendant wishes to appeal the decision of the trial judge to a higher court following sentencing, very specific time limitations apply for filing.

“Success!”

Mitchell was very helpful in explaining the pros and cons of hiring an attorney for this case without pushing into either direction. Mary Baccam was my attorney and she was very competent in explaining all the options and subsequent outcomes of the case. She patiently went over in explaining why ' to plea not guilty' was the best course of action and how to best represent my case. And it was a success! She was welcoming and humane in her representation and yet highly professional and competent.

-Antonio

“Life Saver!”

Best experience of my life !!!! My license was suspended and I was in all sorts of trouble. The law office I called before I called them said there was NOTHING that could be done. However, when I called Mitchell, he was so happy to try to help me get my license back. And they did !! Him and Mary helped my get my license within days of my consultation. Amazing experience. With their many areas of speciality, they are now my go-to law office for ANY problem I may run into. Everyone at the office is so kind. I consider it a blessing that I found them.

“Best lawyer I've ever came to contact with”

I learned about Mr. Sexner when his office sent me a mail after I got arrested for driving on a suspended license and driving while using an electronic device. I honestly thought this was the end of my life because I'm an international student here and something like that could mean disaster for my future...

I remembered Mr. Sexner's name so I called his office and set up an appointment for the next day (one day before my court date). Only thing I wish is that I should have called him before. He not only accommodated me on such short notice and at a very reasonable price, he was extremely thorough, very professional, knowledgeable, and humble...

I could not be happier and I highly recommend that you meet him if you have any traffic related problems.

-Muaz

“The Best”

I had a suspended license and Mr. Sexner assured me that i would be taken cared of. I was hesitant and very nervous but with his politeness and vast knowledge he took care of every question i had and day of the court his co-worker showed up at the time she said she would and we faced the judge and i was in and out like a new man, i would 100% recommend to all family and friends

-Amillo

“Excellent Service”

Mitch went above and beyond in order to help with my case. I was driving under a suspended license and his team was able to convey my duty to pay my balance (reason I was suspended) to the judge and have everything dropped. I walked away unscathed and I also have a huge weight lifted off my shoulders with his unwavering support.

-Karl

“Insightful and Helpful”

Mitch personally helped me with a difficult case, and one with few options. He gave me pragmatic advice, and a useful strategy. It is expert advise like this that people depend on... not gaming the system that lawyers are allowed to do that makes his honesty and integrity so valuable.
