Default What is a Status Conference?

What is a status conference? Who goes to it? My boyfriend has had 3, if I look online it says continued for further hearing. I can't talk on the phone to him because his pin still has not gone through supposedly.

Sorry, I'm not familiar with that term. Hopefully, someone who knows will be by soon!

Ok... I'm not familiar with how things work in Rhode Island, so I'm going to move this thread to the Rhode Island forum. Hopefully someone who can help you comes along soon.

They go over details of the case.. lawyers make offers, check priors to see how serious this case would be... Sometimes the lawyers are talking to a bunch of clients, so not a lot always gets accomplished in 1 day. A lot of it is waiting in the lock up room at the courthouse.

My ex was in intake for 14 months before trial date was set. He's still in intake until sentencing which isn't until January.. 17 months in intake.
There were meetings & conferences nearly each month for something.

A status conference in Florida is when there is just a court hearing to make sure that someone isnt lost in the system pending trial, plea sentencing or whatever.

The judge assigned, the attorney and defendant is brought into court. I also went for my sons. As for how many, as always it depends on what kind of case, is there an offer or plea etc.

Good luck.
