At All American Bail Bonds in Santa Clarita, officials are educating the public on what a defendant can expect when they get to the courtroom.
“The trial is a structured process where the facts of a case are presented to a jury in a court of law and they decide if the defendant is guilty or not guilty,” states the Bail Resource Center & Career Academy.
The basic layout of the courtroom is typically the same, though the specific seating locations of its various components may vary.
When a defendant enters the courtroom, they can plan on seeing: the judge presiding over the case; witnesses to the allegedly criminal activity; the law clerk; a court reporter; the jury; the prosecuting attorney; the defense attorney; the U.S. Marshal or Bailiff; and the seating area for the public.
“A court room contains specific seating areas,” according to the Bail Resource Center & Career Academy.
The defendant sits at the defense table with their legal representation, while the jury is placed in the jury box. The designated seating area where the public may reside is called the gallery.
The court reporter and law clerk typically sit near the front of the courtroom by the judge, and the Bailiff or U.S. Marshal is stationed in front of the gallery behind the defense and prosecution tables.
At the head of the courtroom facing all the occupants is the judge, who is placed next to the witness stand.
