At the pre-trial, your daughter will have a chance to meet with the prosecutor or city attorney one-on-one to see if the case can be resolved. It is at that time that she'll learn if the prosecutor will offer her a chance for the diversion.
If the offer is made, your daughter can accept it and the case will be processed.
If the prosecutor won't offer any plea deals, then your daughter can inform them that she'd like an adjournment so that she can hire her own attorney. The case will be adjourned and then you can hire a private attorney to pick up the ball.
Good luck and best wishes! I hope that you find this information to be helpful and this answer to be ACCEPTable!
