Orange County Criminal Investigation Lawyers

Under investigation by Police in Orange County California?

Once a crime is reported to police, law enforcement conducts a criminal investigation before filing the police report with the district attorney's office. Therefore, Pre-file investigations occur before criminal charges are filed and allow law enforcement to determine if there is sufficient evidence to believe a person has committed a crime. If the police find sufficient evidence, the person can be arrested and or charged with a crime. However, if law enforcement does not find sufficient evidence that either a crime has been committed or that a particular person has committed it, then the person will not face any legal action.
