ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS ABOUT DEFENDING YOUR CASE

HOW LONG MIGHT IT TAKE TO RESOLVE MY CASE IF I AM CHARGED WITH AN OFFENSE IN DALLAS COUNTY?

Cases in Dallas County often take a long time to resolve, particularly if the case is a felony. Often your case will be "passed for announcement" a few times to give the defense and the state a chance to investigate the case and several if the case can be resolved without a trial. It is up to the individual judge whether you will be required to appear in court for "announcement" settings. If the case is eventually set for a trial, it may be reset several times. Older cases and cases where the person has been incarcerated will usually be given priority.
