1 Questions Answered
Q. What is a pretrial conference and what will be done. Its for 2 counts of petite theft.
A: Your question is somewhat unclear. For a new criminal case a person is charged with a crime, they go to arraignment to plead guilty or not guilty. If they plead guilty they are sentenced. If they plead not guilty the case gets set for a pretrial conference. At the pretrial the defendant can enter a plea to the charge or ask for a continuance for more time to conduct discovery/ investigate the case and defenses, or announce that they are ready for trial. If he has already pled and been sentenced to 2 counts of petty theft and now has a VOP because he has not completed his conditions of probation (as your question seems to suggest) then it will follow much of the same pattern as a new case. He will be scheduled for a pretrial where he can do one of the three options above: plead/ admit , ask for more time, or announce ready for a violation of probation hearing.
