This webpage is designed for informational purposes only and it is not to be construed as legal advice. For specific questions please contact an attorney.


After arraignment, if the felony charge is not dropped and you do not plead guilty or no-contest, prior to a trial you will face a preliminary hearing. Additionally, there will be another court appearance before trial to try to end the case with 1) a guilty or no-contest plea or 2) dismissal of charges.

Preliminary hearings

The preliminary hearing usually occurs within 10 court days of the arraignment. During the preliminary hearing, the district attorney must present evidence showing a reasonable suspicion that a felony was committed and that you did it. The judge will determine whether there is sufficient evidence for a trial. If the charges are not dismissed after the preliminary hearing, a jury trial date will be set.
