Criminal Law

The foreman presents a written verdict to the judge, and either the judge or court clerk reads the verdict established by the jury to the court.  The court then enters a judgment based on the verdict, and the jury is released from duty.  If found not guilty, the defendant in a criminal case is released immediately. If the defendant is found guilty, a date is set for sentencing.
