How can I talk to a prosecutor about my case?
If you are not represented by an attorney or by the Public Defender’s Office, you can request at your first court appearance that your case be assigned for a non-attorney pretrial conference with one of the prosecutors to discuss a possible resolution of your case. The court may request you to sign a form indicating your desire to have your case set for a non-attorney pretrial and waiving your right to a speedy trial until the pretrial takes place. Your case will then be set for a specific date and time for you to meet with a prosecutor. The prosecutors will not generally discuss your case with you over the phone or prior to the date set for the non-attorney pretrial conference. If you are being represented by an attorney or by the Public Defender’s Office, the prosecutor will discuss your case with your attorney or public defender ONLY. You should contact your attorney or the Public Defender’s Office at (937) 521-1726.
