Pretrial Conference For Domestic Violence Charges
In a domestic violence case in Florida the next court appearance after the arraignment hearing is a pretrial conference hearing. The pretrial conference hearing is the opportunity for the judge to find out what the status of the domestic violence case is. The judge wants to know if a plea agreement has been reached or if the case needs to be set for trial. If a plea agreement has been reached then sometimes the judge will do the plea and sentencing right then and sometimes the judge will require the plea and sentence be set for a future date. If the case is going to be set for trial the judge is going to want to know information about the trial. The judge is going to want to know how many prospective jurors will be needed for jury selection, how many days the trial is expected to last, how many witnesses each side intends on calling to testify, if there are any pretrial motions that need to be resolved before the jury selection and any other matters that either side needs to address before the trial.
