I was paper arrested with an MIC. I first appear Monday, I want diversion. What will the judge say/ask when I walk in? How to I bargain the plea?
At your first hearing you will be asked by the Court how you plead (guilty or not guilty). You should plead not guilty and consult an attorney. The judge does not offer diversion or settlement options. That is up to the prosecutor who depending on the court in which your matter is pending may not even be present for the first hearing.
