The court appearance during which the defendant pleads guilty or not guilty. Approximately two weeks after the first court appearance, the defendant and his attorney will be summoned to court. At this time, the charges will be read again, and the defendant will either plead guilty or not guilty. If the defendant pleads guilty, a date for sentencing will be set and a Pre-Sentence Investigation (PSI) may be ordered. If no PSI is ordered, sentencing can take place immediately. If requested, victims have a right to be notified before sentencing can occur. If the defendant pleads not guilty, a trial date will be set. Other hearings may also take place before the trial date.
