What Is The Difference Between A Jury Trial And A Bench Trial In the Dayton Area?

In a jury trial, 12 of your peers, or 8 in a misdemeanor case, determine whether you are guilty or not of the crime you are accused of.

In a bench trial, the judge determines whether you are guilty or not, and there is no jury present.

Have you recently been accused of a crime and are expected to go on trial?  If so, contact Dayton Criminal Lawyer Patrick Mulligan at 937-228-9790 for assistance during this sometimes confusing legal process.
