What happens to a felony case after a grand jury true bills it, or after a misdemeanor case is accepted by your office?
The case will be randomly assigned to a court. At regularly scheduled times, which are established by court order, the defendant will have to appear in the court to take up legal matters. They include formally charging the defendant, telling the court whether the defendant will enter a guilty plea, or whether the defendant requests a trial by judge or jury. Before trial, legal issues may be raised in the form of pre-trial motions, and resolved by the court’s rulings.
