Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.Pretrial is not an arraignment. It is where the attorneys will discuss any motions that have been filed. Has your attorney filed any Motions such as for discovery to obtain evidence or for a dismissal?At any rate, there should be no reason to place you in jail. If you take a plea at the time of pre trial or any time during the proceeding you can remain on bond until sentencing. Of course, in considering a plea, you want to be sure the sentence is a suspended sentence and probation so that you do not actually spend any time in jail.
