How Do I Know If the Prosecutor Intends to Take My DUI Case to Trial?
There are various signs that your Sacramento criminal defense attorney will look for in determining whether the prosecutor intends to take your case to trial. One major signal the prosecution will give in exposing its position is note taking.Note Taking: Good or Bad Sign?
In the majority of DUI cases, the state assigns more than one prosecutor to a case, depending on their workload and schedules. Therefore, the prosecutor that is in charge on a particular day will take detailed notes in your file, often in front of your Sacramento criminal defense attorney in the courtroom.
The majority of times, when the prosecutor takes extensive notes, it means that they intend to take your case to trial. Massive note taking generally means that the prosecutor feels there is something in your case that will hold up against the jury.
Your Sacramento criminal defense attorney will observe the prosecutor’s demeanor during pretrial hearings in conjunction with their note taking to also get a better feel of how they plan on handling your DUI case. The prosecutor’s attitude, comments and tone of voice are generally reflective and good indications of whether they intend to settle your case or take it to trial.Contact Us for More Information
