Okay. To begin our video series, we are going to start with what happens when someone has been arrested. Now, if you have looked at some of my other videos that reference the upside-down letter Y, that’s a pretty good description for how the legal system actually looks. So, let’s break that down into its component parts so that you understand every single part of the process of what’s going to happen to you or someone you love. Every case begins with what is known as an incident call. It can be a 911 call, something an officer observes in the field, a number of different ways there could be contact with the law enforcement officer. This begins an investigation. And people will often ask, “How long is an investigation?” The investigation phase of a case can last a few seconds and result in an immediate arrest, it can last for months and result in a warrant-based arrest, or it can last sometime in-between.
