A criminal court tries only criminal offenses, such as theft, assault and battery, or drug possession. Civil courts handle civil cases, such as lawsuits.
The steps of a criminal trial include jury selection, opening statements, presenting evidence, closing statements, jury deliberation, and verdict.
A jury of peers is selected before trial to review evidence and determine whether the defendant is innocent or guilty of each charge.
