What is a Pre-trial Conference?

The Pre-trial Conference is a private meeting with the prosecuting attorney.  At this meeting, you will have the opportunity to fully discuss your case and come to a mutually acceptable agreement concerning disposition of your citation.  If an agreement is reached, it will be presented, in writing, to the Judge.  If the Judge approves the agreement, you will be given a copy and must follow the stated terms.  If you do not reach an agreement at the Pre-trial Conference, you case will be scheduled for a Trial.

All Court filings of Notice of Retainer and/or Not Guilty pleas or requests for adjournments of any scheduled court hearings, by mail, e-mail or in person, shall be made at least forty-eight (48) hours prior to the scheduled hearing. 

When are Pre-trial Conferences held?

Pre-trial Conferences are held on regular Court days.  The Municipal Court Clerk will provide you with your date.  The prosecuting attorney will call your name when he is ready to meet with you.

Am I able to see the Somers prosecuting attorney before my court date?

No. The prosecuting attorney is only available in the courtroom on your scheduled Pre-trial Conference date.
