My question involves criminal law for the state of:rhode island. i was in a bar that was full of people. during trying to find my friends, i accidently bumped in to a highly intoxicated (at the time i did not no he was drunk) male. the male then spun around and started swearing at me and even threatin to kill me. He then got in my face in a threating manner and at that time i punched him once in the face, causing him to be knocked out and causing serious bodily injury to his face. there were no cameras , only a bouncer who turned around the last second and saw me hit the guy. my question is what is a pretrial?, what can i expect to come out of the pretrial? and can there be more then one pretrial? thank you for your time.
