How it works

At the arraignment hearing; the plea you enter should always be “Not Guilty”; regardless of the details and circumstances of your case. At this hearing, prosecutors will often request that the judge require strict release conditions such as bail or an Ignition Interlock Device (in the case of DUI). An experienced King County defense attorney can frequently avoid these conditions, especially on first-time offenses.

Pretrial Conferences; also called Pretrial Hearings (PTR); are the next step. Most cases have several PTR’s before they are resolved or set for trial. If the prosecutor presents an acceptable plea bargain (plea deal), the case can be concluded at a PTR. Throughout this process, your defense attorney will be investigating and gathering any evidence relevant to your case.

If a case is not resolved of at a PTR; your attorney will likely make pretrial motions. Depending on the facts and laws surrounding your case, there are several pretrial motions that can have a significant impact on your defense.

Many cases do not go to trial – a last resort due to risk and cost. You may decide to proceed to trial if, for example, the prosecution has not offered an acceptable plea deal or if a conviction would cause considerable damage to your career or personal life.
