    Default Appearance Ticket and Plea

    When you get an apperance ticket for court can you plead guilty right there or do you have to wait for your next apperance date?
    Also can i make my own plea deal or let the public defender handel that?

    It depends upon the ticket and nature of the proceeding. In many cases you could plead guilty at the first court appearance.

    You can make your own deal, but....

    * If you plead guilty at your first court hearing, there may not even be a prosecutor present to offer you a deal;

    * You would benefit from consulting a lawyer to be sure that the deal that is offered is reasonable, given your circumstances.
