Well, you should not have waived your prelim. I never waive prelim for any of my clients. Prelim is like a miniature trial. The witnesses must come forward, be placed under oath and answer questions. The prelim is the key pre trial hearing and your best chance to get charges dismissed or to whittle the case down to what it really is. You have a right to a grand jury OR a prelim, not both. Now that you have waived prelim, a judge has determined that there is enough evidence to schedule a trial. You have not been convicted, you have only been "bound over" for trial. You can still win at trial, but you need a good lawyer to help you. Please call me, Chip Venie, 505 766 9000.
