Tampa DUI Criminal Progression Pre-Trial Conference

A pre-trial conference is a court proceeding in which the prosecuting and defense attorneys discuss the status of the case with the judge. At this time the court is informed of possible plea agreement or the availability of victims/witnesses for trial if a plea agreement cannot be reached. In addition, if the defendant, State or Court is not ready for trial and a plea agreement cannot be reached, the judge may grant a continuance of the case. If both the State and the defense cannot agree to a plea and the judge does not grant a continuance, then the case will be scheduled for trial.
