Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.
This is an informal resolution type setting.Expect the prosecutor to talk to you individually and offer you something like minimum fine $300-$350 and probation here.You decide if you want to accept the offer or not.If not here you plead not guilty and it is set for judge or jury trial.If this is your first offense you may take the offer, if you feel you can prove you are innocent you may decide to plead not guilty and proceed to trial.
If you are unable to afford a lawyer they would appoint you one if you don't want to plead here since jail time is involved.
If you can get an offer for deferred adjudication, where you plead this and complete probation and they dismiss it in say six months that would be a good thing for you.Ask about that.
I appreciate the chance to help you and wish you the best here.
