Q: Attorney Tully, I have a Preliminary Hearing next week for some assault related charges. Should I just waive the cases to Court or ask for a hearing?

A: It’s your call. There may be some situations when you should waive your case to Court. But not many. For example, if they drop the more serious assault charge in exchange for a waiver to Court of the lesser assault charge, that could be worth it. But if they are not willing to drop any of the charges at the hearing, why waive it? You should immediately contact an attorney for advice on this issue. Bernie
