Judgment / Verdict

If the case is tried by the Judge, the Judge’s decision is called a Judgment. If the case is tried by a Jury, the Jury’s decision is called a Verdict.

The Verdict

The verdict will be based on the testimony and the facts presented during the trial. In making the determination, the Judge or Jury can only consider the testimony of the witnesses who testify under oath. If found Not Guilty, you will be acquitted of the charges. If you are found Guilty, the Judge will announce the penalty at that time.
