After you are released from prison, you will be given a court date. It will be within a week or two of your arrest date. Don’t worry. Nothing will happen that day and no witness will be there. The judge will simply give you a court date to appear. After that, you will then be assigned a judge and it will be a judge that hears mostly domestic violence cases. From there, a trial date will be set within the month.

During the trial date, there are four possible outcomes that could happen. First, should no witnesses show up, the case may be dismissed for failure to prosecute the case. Second, a plea bargain could be reached in the case. Third, you may have a bench trial, but the ADA must agree to this. Finally, you can have a preliminary hearing. The bottom line is, one can’t predict what is going to happen due to all the different variables.
