What happens at a trial?

At the trial, both sides will have the opportunity to tell the judge what happened and to present witness testimony and evidence. The judge decides whether the person is found guilty and if so, the judge decides the sentence. The sentence could impose jail time, fines, probation, public service work, classes or a combination of these.
