going to COURT..........................?
Hi, when you go to court to plea innocent, do you talk to the judge being to person at the court or do i get like representative to tell for me? i really do not know how it works. (first time going) . Thanks.
Well, I've been imbroiled with the ruling almost 6 mos. now, and I have not spoken to anyone except my attorney (court appointed) who does not like to address or answer questions or listen. Anyhow, I've been to court 5 times, and my case is reset for subsequent month for MNCH. My attorney, the prosecutor and the judge have spoken together on about 3 of my appearances in that, and I wonder hmmmmm what could they be saying, and wonder if I'd do a better job representing myself. Anyhow, just progress with the flow, let your attorney do the legal work. He or she will ask you to procure a lot of information together. Do that and be thorough. Patience is needed. The wheel of justice turns completely slowly. Good luck to you. I hope you'll get free of your problem, as I expect to be free and no-billed in the end. To answer your ask, I have not spoken to the judge person to character. Your attorney will attend with you when the judge asks that question, "how do you plead". You would own discussed it with your attorney ahead of time. Your attorney will be right there standing beside you. Anyhow, maybe I'm have a bench trial. I have not yet been asked that examine. Here's some advice. Ask your attorney about a "bench trial". It could be nice. To others reading this: Stay out of trouble. Do Not Get Tangled Up With the Law.
I think when you go for the first time, a hearing you can progress alone. You stand in front of a judge and tell them your plea. If you Plea innocent afterwards the judge will appoint a court date for you. At that date you need to bring a attorney to represent you unless your representing yourself. Depends on what your charged with, if its for a moment ticket or something your court costs and lawyer fees can be more then just pleading no contest. But i guess if your innocent after its your call.
You will appear in front of a judge he/she will read he charges against you and then ask you how do you plead. plead not guilty or ask the authority for a court appointed attorney
Ok your referring to your arrignment. Ok heres how it goes: 1) The settle reads out the information (your charges) 2) If it's summary offence then on to # 3, if indictable on to # 3. If it's hybrid the crown will be asked how they want to try the bag 3) The judge will ask you how you want to plea either guilty or not guilty 4) If you plead guilty then you will hold a sentencing date set in about a month, the probation officer needs to do a pre sentence report 5) If you plea not guilty; 1) If its summary it will be tried within provincal court with just a judge 2) If it's indictable and carry a sentence of 5 years or more, you will be asked 3 things a) do u want a judge/jury trial in superior court b) do u want a trial with a judge within provincal court c) do u want a trial with a judge in superior court 6) Once your plea is enter a next court date will be set.
