The NOTIS Legal Division presents

Criminal Motions 101
Washington State General Criminal Procedure and Motions Practice for Interpreters
Presented by Gabriel I. Banfi, Attorney at Law

This is a recorded workshop formatted into an on-demand workshop.

What is this about? 
Please join us to review general criminal procedure for the Superior Courts and for the Courts of Limited Jurisdiction in the State of Washington. Discussion will emphasize the scope, purpose, and construction of Arraignments, Pre-Trial Conferences, Omnibus Hearings, Motions Hearings, Bench and Jury Trials, and Sentencings. The topics will focus on basic understanding for Interpreters and how they may improve their role as an important part of the judicial process.

In addition, this webinar will discuss the general background of Motions practice in the Criminal Justice system and how pre-trial Motions do affect how a case is presented to the Court and a Jury. Emphasis will be placed on typical Motions raised during a Criminal Trial such as the 3.5 Motion to Suppress Statements made by a defendant and 3.6 Motion to Suppress physical evidence raised in a criminal proceeding.

Handouts: A syllabus and two sample trial documents.
