Can a defendant be present during a prosecutors questioning

This answer was rated:

Can a defendant be present during a prosecutor's questioning of the accuser? That is, the porsecutor will be going over evidence before the trial, can the defendant be present while they go over the evidence?
Thank you for your question today, I look forward to assisting you. I bring nearly 20 years of legal experience in various disciplines.

No, the defendant doesn't get to a part of the trial preparation. The defendant is permitted to be a part of every event that takes place within the trial itself, and can't be sequestered for that, but trial preparation is not part of the trial.
