Q: Attorney Tully, I keep hearing about a stipulated non-jury trial. What is it and have you ever had one of those trials?
A: Yes, I did one last week. In a stipulated non-jury trial no live witnesses are called. Rather the Judge receives a summary of the case as outlined by the attorneys for the prosecution and the defense. Both sides then make their arguments to the Judge who decides the case. It worked out okay in my case because the Judge found my client guilty of a less serious offense. As a result, he did not lose his driving privileges. Call me.
