How Long Do Criminal Cases Take in Texas?

Most criminal cases in Texas follow a timeline that looks something like this:

  • Investigation: This is the stage where the police or other law enforcement agents gather evidence against you. In some cases, this stage can take weeks or even months.
  • Arrest: If the police have enough evidence to arrest you, they will do so. After you have been arrested, you will be taken to the police station, where you will be booked. The booking process can take several hours. Once you have been booked, you will be taken to a holding cell until you are able to post bail or are released on your own recognizance.
  • Initial court appearance: After you have been arrested, you will be required to appear in court for your initial court hearing, also known as an arraignment. During the arraignment, the judge will inform you of the charges against you and will ask how you would like to plea. You will also have the opportunity to ask for a court-appointed attorney if you cannot afford to hire one yourself.
  • Pre-trial: After your arraignment, your case will enter the pre-trial phase. During this time, your attorney and the prosecutor will engage in plea negotiations. If a plea agreement is reached, you will have the opportunity to accept or reject it. If you choose to accept the plea agreement, you will be required to appear in court to enter your plea. If you reject the plea agreement, your case will move to the next stage.
  • Trial: If your case goes to trial, your attorney and the prosecutor will present their cases to a judge or jury. You will have the opportunity to testify on your own behalf, but you are not required to do so. After both sides have presented their cases, the judge or jury will deliberate and will then deliver a verdict.
  • Sentencing: If you are found guilty, you will be required to appear in court for your sentencing hearing. During this hearing, the judge will determine your sentence. If you are found not guilty, you may be able to file a motion to have your arrest or conviction expunged from your criminal record.

The entire process can take several months or even years, depending on the complexity of your case and the court's schedule. If you have been arrested in Alamo, Texas, it is important to contact an experienced criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. Your lawyer can help you navigate the criminal justice system and can protect your rights every step of the way.

How to Choose the Right Criminal Defense Lawyer

If you have been arrested in Alamo, Texas, you need an experienced criminal defense lawyer on your side. However, not all lawyers are the same. When choosing an attorney, you need to find someone who has the right experience, knowledge, and skills to help you achieve the best possible outcome in your case.

Some things to consider when choosing a criminal defense lawyer include:

  • Experience: How long has the lawyer been practicing? Do they have experience handling cases like yours?
  • Track Record: What is the lawyer's track record of success? Have they handled cases similar to yours? What were the outcomes?
  • Reputation: What do past clients have to say about their experience working with the lawyer? What do other attorneys think of the lawyer?
  • Availability: How easy is it to get in touch with the lawyer? Are they available to answer your questions and address your concerns?
  • Comfort Level: Do you feel comfortable talking to the lawyer? Do they take the time to listen to you and understand your goals? Do they make you feel confident in their ability to handle your case?
