Pretrial Conference

In traffic and non-traffic misdemeanor cases, this is the defendant’s second court appearance. It is a scheduled meeting between the Prosecuting Attorney and the defendant (or his attorney) to determine whether the case will go to trial or be resolved with a plea. These meetings focus on resolving the case short of trial. The Judge and witnesses are not involved in misdemeanor pre-trial conferences. If a plea bargain is going to be offered by the Prosecutor, it is done here.
