Criminal justice system is meant to control crime and prosecute those who violate laws. Asking yourself how does the criminal system work? Well, a case begins with:
- investigation of the crime by the law enforcement officers
- gathering evidence to identify the perpetrator and use it against them
- making an arrest
- examination of the evidences by the court and determining whether the defendant is guilty or not
- if guilty, the convicted party will go to prison or receive probation.
