Your Attorney Could Get the Case Dismissed
Video Transcript: What’s a pretrial conference? Hi, my name is Jason Sorenson. I’m an Oklahoma lawyer at Wirth Law Office, and today we’re going to be talking about pretrial conferences.
A pretrial conference is a hearing before the trial where the attorney gets to argue pretrial motion. So motions that are taking place before the trial even happens. It’s a time where the attorney can make motions to exclude certain evidence or even get the case dismissed because there isn’t enough evidence to convict the defendant.
But the attorney can also discuss plea bargains with the prosecutor to try to get the case dismissed or even just get a lighter sentence for the defendant. But a lot of times, getting that lighter sentence will require the defendant to plead guilty to a less significant charge in order to get that deal. But it is a very important step, and it’s a step that you’ll definitely want to have an attorney there to represent you on. But this is just basic information.
