What Happens When You Go Farmers Branch Municipal Court?
If you are planning on attending a court hearing for a traffic ticket case that is pending in Farmers Branch Municipal Court, you need to be able to prepare for the hearing accordingly. There are some basic rules that each defendant must follow to gain the most advantage from attending the hearing:
• Dress appropriately. First appearances are important. When you meet a prosecutor, they are sizing you up. They want to know if they have a good chance of beating you at trial. If you show up to court in flip flops and ripped up jeans, they know they have you beat. Farmers Branch juries are conservative. Dress conservatively and play the part.
• Don’t act like you know the law better than the prosecutor. You are not a lawyer. Suggest that you understand the law is a certain way based on your limited research. Request their opinion. Invite them into the discussion. Don’t start a confrontation at this point. That is what a trial is for. Pick their brain. Try to understand their legal theory so you can prepare for it at trial.
• Always request the absolute best deal possible for your case even if you do plan on taking it to trial. Have them write it on the file and reset your case to think about it prior to the next hearing date. Request a reset to think about it. Most prosecutors will allow at least one reset. Do the research necessary to confirm the prosecutor’s legal theory of the case. If the prosecutor is correct, you may want to take the deal at the next setting. If you find “holes” in the legal argument of the prosecutor, you may want to take your case to trial.
• Do not tell the Farmers Branch prosecutor your side of the story. You are there to learn their side of the story. Ask questions like, what do you have on this case? What type of evidence are you planning on presenting at trial? Can I have a copy of anything you are going to use at trial to review? If the prosecutor requests you to file a motion for discovery, then do it. Request a reset to give you time to file the motion. Be polite and tell them you are simply curious about the judicial system and want to take this case as an opportunity to learn more.
• Don’t be intimidated by a prosecutor. They will try to get you to plea a traffic ticket case out on the date of your first hearing because they are lazy. More hearings means more work. Be polite and tell them that you just need time to consider their offer and perhaps save some money in the event that you do decide to take their offer.
