What Happens Now?

If the jury acquits you of the criminal charge(s), then your case is completed and you are totally free.

If you get a discontinuance, your case is also finished. Take note though that the prosecution can restart the case if a witness was to come along who supports the case against you. This, however, rarely happens after a discontinuance is filed at the Court.

If you had made a plea and were given a sentence, then the next step is for you to discuss with us your appeal.
