Criminal Law

Criminal suspects and criminal defendants are specially protected by Constitutional safeguards, including the right to a jury trial, the requirement that they be proved guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, the right to counsel and the right to remain silent.

A felony is a classification of criminal offenses more serious than misdemeanors. More precisely, a felony is a criminal act punishable by incarceration exceeding one year, fines more than $1000, or both. If you are charged with a felony you have a Constitutional right to a jury trial.

In Nebraska, felonies are first charged in County Court. For the case to be transferred ("bound over") from County Court to District Court--which is where the actual trial on
felony charges would be held--the County Attorney has to show probable cause at a preliminary hearing that the offense occurred. Often, defendants waive their right to a preliminary hearing. But sometimes there are good strategic reasons to not do so.

Misdemeanors are offenses that are less serious than felonies but more serious than civil infractions. Misdemeanors are punishable by incarceration of a year or less.
