You have the right to represent yourself in court, but it is definitely not advisable. The process is complex and the possible consequences, if convicted, may be severe.
The criminal justice process normally follows this pattern:
A negotiated plea, also known as a "plea bargain" can occur at any point in the process.
This simplified version of the criminal justice process only begins to show how complex it can be. You need an experienced lawyer by your side at every step in this process.
