After an arrest, most likely the incident report is sent from the Chandler Police Department to the County Attorney’s Office. A San Tan Justice Court Prosecutor will examine the file and then determine whether their office will move forward with the Driving Under the Influence charges. If the Prosecutor files the charges in an indictment, the arrestee will be named as the Defendant in the San Tan Justice Court. A Summons, if not already given directly to Defendant by the arresting officer, will be mailed or served upon the Defendant. Within the Summons, an Initial Appearance hearing date will be found, which is mandatory to attend. If the Defendant fails to appear a San Tan Justice Court could issue an arrest warrant. After the Initial Appearance, a Pretrial Conference is scheduled by the Court. This allows the Defendant to examine the police report and consider the current plea offer. If the Defendant is unwilling to enter into a plea offer with the State, then the case will be set for Trial.
