Such cases will usually begin with an arrest, although in some cases officers will take a report and then obtain a warrant and arrest the defendant later. Such cases often hinge on the admissibility and reliability of eyewitness testimony, whether law enforcement illegally collected evidence, whether the defendant was acting in self-defense, and whether the victim’s account of events is believable.
