At a Court trial, you, as wellas the prosecution, will present your case before the Judge.  You will need to prepare all of your evidence prior to this proceeding and bring any witnesses that would help your defense.  The prosecution will produce its witnesses to testify as to the facts and circumstances surrounding your case.  You, or your attorney, will have an opportunity to cross-examine each witness.  When the prosecution has completed its case, you and your witnesses will be given the opportunity to testify and will be subjected to cross-examination by the prosecution.  After all the evidence has been presented, the prosecution and defense will be given an opportuntiy to summarize their respective cases to the Court through a brief statement.  Thereafter, the Court will determine you innocence or guilt.  If the Court finds you not guilty, the case will be dismissed.  If you are found guilty, the Court will impose a penalty.
