As a defendant, you are entitled to be represented by counsel at every stage of this proceeding.

Upon an entry of a plea of guilty, you are essentially waiving your right to a trial of your case, at which the People are charged with proving you guilty of the offense beyond a reasonable doubt. A plea of guilty may have a serious impact on your future privilege to operate a vehicle.

If you plead not guilty to the charge(s), you are entitled to, and may request that you be furnished with a supporting deposition. Your request for the supporting deposition must be timely and prior to trial to enable the complainant to provide the deposition to you at least 5 days prior to trial.

Should you desire to conference the matter with the District Attorney's office prior to trial either your attorney or you, if you are appearing without counsel, may do so by forwarding to the Madison County District Attorney, c/o Oneida City Court, 108 Main Street, Oneida, NY 13421, a statement in writing as to your version of the events and any circumstances that you or your counsel may wish to bring to the District Attorney's attention. This statement MUST be written within one week of receipt of this notice.

Depending on the District Attorney's investigation of the charge, an offer by way of a consent letter may be forwarded to you. If you are in agreement with the consent letter, please return your copy of the consent letter and a note pleading to the charge on the consent letter to the Court and dispositional sentence will be issued.

If you do not agree with the consent letter, upon notification of such to the Court, a trial date will then be set.

If a consent letter is not issued within a reasonable time, a trial date will be set.
