If you are a defendant and have hired an attorney, our office will not be able to speak with you because it would be a conflict of interest. We are only able to speak with your attorney regarding your case.
If you do not have an attorney, you can waive your right to an attorney for the purpose of discussing your case with the prosecutor.
If at the initial appearance you enter a not guilty plea, your case will be either set for a pre-trial conference with the prosecutor and/or set for a status conference before the assigned judge. You will be given a status conference date by the court. You may show up half an hour early to discuss your case with the assigned prosecutor. If an attorney represents you, then only your attorney can contact our office to discuss your case with our prosecutor.
