How Are Criminal Law Charges Filed?

Criminal cases can be filed for multitude of activities, like when citizens complain that a crime has been committed, sometimes the police themselves charge people under suspicion or an aggrieved citizen claims that some wrongful act has been done to him/her by someone, etc. Once the police is called or involved, they will investigate the matter by taking statements of the witnesses and by preparing reports on their findings. At times, they will arrest people during the course of their investigation. At other times, they will complete their report and submit it to the prosecutor’s office for evaluation, and a prosecutor will decide whether charges should be filed against any suspects named in the police report.

 

The exact procedure of how the criminal case will be filed varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Some jurisdictions give the police greater discretion in charging defendants with specific crimes, while others place more power with the prosecutor’s office. After being stopped by the police, a person may be ticketed for a “civil infraction,” may be ticketed or arrested for a “misdemeanor,” or may be arrested for a “felony.”

When Will The Police Stop A Person?

Generally, the police may stop a person for committing a traffic violation, for suspicion of being engaged in criminal activity, or to arrest the person for a criminal act. After being stopped by the police, a person will typically be questioned.

Can Police Stop and Question People Who Are Not Under Arrest?

The police can stop a person, and ask questions, without “arresting” the person. Upon seeing suspicious activity, the police may perform what is called a “Terry Stop,”

It was a decision taken by the United States Supreme Court, which held that the Fourth Amendment prohibition on unreasonable searches and seizures was not violated when a police officer stopped a suspect on the street and searched him without probable cause to arrest. The Court held that police may briefly detain a person if they have a reasonable suspicion that the person has committed, is committing, or is about to commit a crime.

 

The scope of a “Terry Stop” is limited to investigation of the specific suspicious activity, and if the police detain people to question them about additional matters, the stop can turn into an “arrest.” For their own safety, the police can perform a “weapons frisk” on the outside of a person’s clothes (sometimes called “patting down the suspect”) during a “Terry Stop.” During this frisk, if they feel something that may be a weapon, they may remove it from the suspect for further examination. However, they are not entitled to remove items from person’s pockets that do not appear to be weapons, even if they believe that the items are contraband.

 

If The Police Ask To Search Me, My House, Or My Car, Do I Have To Say “Yes”?

No. You can refuse the search request. Police may want to search your house on the grounds of suspicion and with an assumption that they will find evidence for alleged criminal activity. To perform search, they need to have proper legal authority. With that, they can search your house even after your refusal. But in case they don’t have the permission to do so, by agreeing to their request you will be providing the same.

 

During an investigative stop, or a traffic stop, a police officer may ask if he can search you or your car. However, if you give the police officer permission, he can perform the search even if he otherwise had no legal authority to do so. Some people don’t know, or forget, that they have an “open” bottle of liquor in the car – a bottle with the seal broken, whether or not the cap is off. Sometimes, people have knives or other weapons which can be classified as illegal “concealed weapons.” Sometimes, people forget that they have contraband in their cars, such as illegal drugs, or find to their chagrin that their teenaged child dropped a marijuana cigarette in the car. Unless you are the only person with access to the interior of your car, you may be in for a surprise if you grant permission for a search.

 

Do The Police Have To “Read Me My Rights” When I Am Arrested?

The police have no obligations to announce the suspect’s Miranda Rights. Generally, the police inform a suspect that he has been arrested. However, many defendants never receive their “Miranda Rights,” which relate to the validity of police questioning of suspects who are in custody, and not to the arrest itself.

 

What Is The Difference Between A “Terry Stop” And An “Arrest?”

Terry Stop can be made upon reasonable suspicion that a person may have been engaged in a particular activity while arrest requires probable cause that a suspect committed a criminal offence.

 

Can the Police Arrest Me Without A Warrant?

If the offense was committed in presence of a police officer, the officer can arrest you without warrant. However, officer can arrest on the basis of witness statement in case of felonies.
