Prior to the day of trial, you must attend a docket. At this docket, the court will go over your rights at trial. You may also request to speak to the prosecutor and receive a plea offer. If you and the prosecutor can agree on a way to resolve your case (plea agreement), your plea will be present to the court at the docket. Most cases are resolved this way, but the court it not required to follow the plea agreement. If the court decides not to follow the plea agreement, you may withdraw your plea and the court will set your case for trial.
If you and the prosecutor cannot reach a plea agreement or if you do not wish to speak with the prosecutor, then the court will visit with you about how to resolve your case.
