My question involves criminal law for the state of: TEXAS
I have two charges pending in a Texas municipal court. Low-level misdemeanor charges not worth the expense of involving my own hired attorney.
I went in for scheduled arraignment, no pleas entered. I told court representative I intended to plead not guilty, and I was scheduled for a pre-trial hearing. I have since received each of the notarized complaints. I have motions I wish to file. Most important is my motion for discovery. I have printed the motion, and I know where to go to file it with the court, but do I need to give copies of the motions to the prosecutor? Do I just file my motions with the court, or do I need to also send them to the prosecutor (who is in the same building)? If I also need to give motions to prosecutor, do I have to give to prosecutor first, then court?
