what is the criminal court procedure in Florida?

The criminal court procedure normally starts off with first appearance, where an arrestee is advised of their rights, bail set, probable cause is determined. Then it moves on to the next stage, which would be an arraignment in either county or circuit court. Then there would be pretrial hearings to determine the course of the litigation, a plea or trial. Once that's determined, either a plea hearing will be set, or a trial will be set.
