Case Setting

After arraignment a case setting hearing will typically be scheduled. Case setting is an informal hearing where the prosecution and the defense have an opportunity to discuss the case. By this time, your attorney should have had an opportunity to thoroughly review the police reports, discussed them with you and begin the negotiation process with the prosecutor. Any outstanding discovery or other reports is exchanged at this time. If a resolution is reached a plea can be entered, otherwise the case is set for trial and an omnibus hearing is scheduled.
