Civil cases:

A civil case is a time when you want to argue against something minor such as a speeding ticket or traffic violation. For these you need to have the officer if it is a ticket or the person who you are complaining against come in as well. We will help you work out dates.

1. The suspect speaks to the desk attendant and sets up a time either that day or at a later day for the trial to come.
2. When the trial date comes (that has been agreed upon) both sides will come to the PD on there own.
3. They will be presented with the same style as stated above in steps 4,6,7,8.
(No witnesses are used in these crimes unless necessary)
4. The prosecution states what there case is and then is seated.
5. The defense is then allowed to defend themselves.
6. The judge is then allowed to ask any questions they have for either of the sides.
7. The judge then asks if they have any final things to say before they make there decision. ( They have 1 minute each to state this.)
8. The judge then makes his decision.
9. Then the sides leave the courtroom and go to another room where the winner is either allowed to leave or is given his money, items, etc. back that the judge has given to him.


On the date of the crime all members must show up to the trial. Here are the circumstances if someone doesn’t show up.

Transportation IF NEEDED will be provided by the organization to the trial. UNLESS the transportation requires the travel of a suspected criminal, in which case SASP must provide the transportation.
