Your first court appearance date will be an arraignment. On this date, you will be given an opportunity to enter a plea of either “guilty” or “not guilty”. You will not have an opportunity to explain any defenses, extenuating circumstances, or other mitigating factors before entering a plea to the Judge.
If you have any questions about whether your case is court required or non-court required, speak with the court staff.
If you entered a plea of not guilty, you will be set for a trial court date. During your trial date, you will speak with the prosecutor.

Any such agreement will be to be approved by the judge in order to become effective.
If the prosecutor does not offer an alternative agreement, or if the defendant does not accept an agreement offered by the prosecutor, the trial will proceed as scheduled.
