Motions

What are Motions?

A "Motion" is a formal request for the Court to do something, and exactly what the Court is asked to do is set forth in each individual motion. Motions are the primary tool of defense attorneys to fight a criminal case in the courtroom prior to trial.

How Are Motions Made?

Motions are most often submitted as written documents, called "pleadings," which are filed with the court. Motions can also be made orally before the Court, although the Court will prefer to have written briefs, unless circumstances making briefing unnecessary or impractical.

Once a motion is filed, the Court will generally set the motion for a hearing. Prior to the hearing, the opposing party will usually file an Opposition, which is a pleading asking the Court to deny the Motion.

Depending on the nature of the Motion, the Court's hearing will either include a presentation of evidence (usually witness testimony), arguments from the attorney, or both. In some instances, the Court will decide to rule upon a motion without holding a hearing.

 Probation Violations

If you are accused of a probation violation, the immediate concern is whether or not your underlying sentence (and prison time) will be imposed, or if perhaps the judge will give you a second chance by placing you back on probation.

As a matter of practice, judges are more likely to give you a second chance if:

  • The underlying crime was less serious

  • This is your first mistake

  • You have a reasonable excuse

  • You are sincerely sorry for your violation

  • You have done other good things while on probation

  • You do not have a long criminal history

Nevertheless, even if you have some good factors for the judge to consider, you will still be at their mercy. Probation is a privilege, not a right, and some judges are harsher than others when it comes to probation violations.

But the more major the probation violation, the more likely the judge will revoke probation, un-suspend your sentence, and remand you to jail or prison to serve your original sentence.
