A big part about getting arrested, is having to go to court. When a person has been arrested, they haven’t officially been found guilty of the crime in question. They have to go to trial for that. Going to court is very important and a person will want to do everything that they can to make a good impression. Doing so could help them stay out of jail.
When it comes to going to court, the first thing that you need to consider is what you are wearing. Outfits need to be professional, not casual. This means that men should wear collared, button down shirts that are tucked into their pants and a belt. Women should wear pants or a skirt that goes past their knees, a business appropriate blouse, and avoid clothes that could be considered too revealing.
Some of the basic, but very important, rules of the courtroom include:
- Always pay attention.
- Arrive on time.
- Be polite, courteous, and respectful.
- No chewing gum.
- No eating or drinking in the courtroom.
- No yelling or shouting.
- Turn your phone off or leave it in the car.
The most important rule of the court is to always treat the judge with respect. In a courtroom, the judge represents the law of the land. Always address the judge as “Your Honor.” Never interrupt the judge and comply with whatever the judge says. Failing to do so could cause a person to be held in contempt of court.
A person’s trial is very important as it determines whether or not as person will be found innocent or guilty. This means it is very important for a person going to court to put their best foot forward by dressing and behaving appropriately. Doing so could affect the outcome of the trial.
