The Investigative and Arrest Phases of a Harris County Criminal Case
An investigation is usually mounted by the police when they have reason to believe
you have committed a crime. During this investigative phase, law enforcement personnel
typically assess the facts, conduct witness interviews, and generally collect evidence
against you. When the police feel they have sufficient evidence against you, they
may ask a Harris County Judge to sign a Harris County Warrant for your arrest. Once you have been arrested,
you will be taken before a judge who may require you to post bail or who might deny
you the opportunity to post bail, requiring you to remain in jail until your trial.
Having an aggressive Harris County Criminal Defense Attorney in your corner at the early stages in your
criminal case can make the difference in whether or not you will remain incarcerated
Harris County Criminal Arraignments, Preliminary Hearings, and Possible Plea-Bargains
During your Harris County Criminal Arraignment, you will appear before a Harris County Judge and enter your
plea. You will then be required to appear at your preliminary hearing. During this
hearing, the prosecutor will attempt to show there is sufficient evidence against
you to proceed to trial. Having a knowledgeable Harris County Criminal Defense Attorney to represent
you is of paramount importance at this time. You will need an experienced Houston Criminal Defense Lawyer who can competently argue that there is not enough evidence against you to merit
proceeding to trial and that the charges against you should be dropped.
Should probable cause be established, having a Houston Criminal Defense Attorney on your
side may allow you to negotiate a plea bargain in which the prosecutor might reduce
the charges against you, drop some of the charges against you, or advocate for a
more moderate sentence in exchange for your guilty plea. Having a veteran Houston Criminal Defense Attorney on your side can be a huge advantage during the plea-bargain process.
The Harris County Criminal Defense Attorneys at Sullo & Sullo are capable of providing that advantage.
The Harris County Criminal Case Trial Phase

devastated by the Harris County Criminal Charges leveled against you, and the task of finding
a Harris County Criminal Defense Lawyer with the necessary talent and proficiency to fight
aggressively for you may seem incredibly difficult. The truth is that not all Harris County Criminal Defense Law Firms are equally capable of mounting a successful criminal defense in a serious Harris County Criminal Case, and the ability and knowledge of your Harris County Criminal Defense Attorney will have a significant
influence on the results of your case. The majority of those charged with a crime in Harris County have never been in trouble with the law before or had any substantial dealings with
the American Criminal Justice System.
