Common Pre-Trial Motions by Defense Attorneys
After arraignment, pre-trial and motions comes the time for trial. Most defendants are very confused about what happens before trial. One of the most important things a defense attorney can do is file “Pre-Trial” motions. These are motions that are filed before the jury is sworn to ensure a smooth running trial. For example, the defense attorney may ask the court to admonish the prosecutor and the police from referring to the “victim” as the “victim” as it assumes a crime has occurred. In most cases only a defendant’s guilty plea or a jury’s finding of guilt can legally confer the label of “victim.” Another pre-trial motion that defense counsel may ask the court to consider is to admonish the prosecutor from discrediting the defense counsel.
