Q: What does a third DVI court date mean?
I have a open DV case. I'm the defendant I had two court dates one when I turned myself in saw the judge the next day then I was released. My second court date was called a DVI. On that date the judge stated plaintiff didn't sign any papers with the prosecution to pursue charges. However, the judge stated I have to return back to court on a later date. I'm not sure what that means please help. Thank you!
A: It is, in all likelihood, and for something called all purposes (AP) hearing. Time between all purpose hearings is generally used by the defense counsel to work out our began working out at potential plea deal.
