Arrest and Arriagnment

The mice were arrested for misdemeanor theft. They were appointed a public defender before their arraignment. At the arraignment the mice pleaded not guilty and bail was set at $500,000. There was no plea bargain made, so the case would go to trial in front of a grand jury.

The Trial

Many witnesses were subpoenaed to court to speak. The defendant had the chance to tell their side of the story, after swearing not to commit perjury. The prosecution then had a chance to report their side of the story. The judge and jury heard both sides, and then the jury went to decide the verdict. The jury had a unanimous decision that the mice were guilty. The mice would trial to appeal to a higher court.
