The chart below is meant to give you an overview of the way a criminal prosecution commences and move through the court system here in Pennsylvania. While each and every case is unique and there may be some difference from county to county, this overview gives a good, general outline of the way a case moves from beginning to end in a step-by-step fashion. If you or a loved one have been charged with a crime and you have additional questions about the process, I invite you to contact our office for a consultation.
