    Answered . I don't understand your question. Are there maybe some typos in there? As it reads, the question just doesn't make sense, particularly the "pass slip" part. Is this maybe some kind of clerk's notation that a plea bargain offer has been made?

    Answered . If your case is set in Tarrant County an announcement setting is where you must announce to the court trial or no trial.
