Doc's CJ Glossary by Adam J. McKee
Course: Introduction

The term judgment refers to the final decision made by a judge or jury in a criminal case.

It is the official determination of guilt or innocence, and it is based on the evidence and arguments presented during the trial. The judge or jury considers the facts of the case and applies the relevant law to determine whether the defendant is guilty of the charges brought against them. If the defendant is found guilty, the judgment will include the specific punishment or sentence they will receive.

The judgment is a crucial part of the criminal justice process, as it provides closure to the case and ensures that justice is served.
