Will I get arrested and go to jail at my pre-trial conference court date?

We get asked quite frequently if people get arrested and go to jail at pre-trial conference for a misdemeanor charge in Sarasota County. The answer is generally, no. It is possible, though.

Generally speaking, the purpose of a pre-trial conference, for a misdemeanor court case in Sarasota, Florida, is to either plea to the charges, ask the judge for a continuance to another pre-trial conference or plea date, or set the case for trial.

Occasionally, there are people who are arrested at pre-trial conference, and it is almost always for one of the following reasons: They have a warrant out for their arrest, they choose to plea to the state's plea offer that includes jail, they show up for court obviously under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or they are out of control and disrespectful to the judge.

The vast majority of people do not go to jail at pre-trial conference. Each legal situation is entirely unique. Please do not rely on this post or anything you read on the internet. If you have questions about your case please call our attorneys at (941) 444-5128 for a free consultation or case analysis.
