Regardless of the whether you take a plea or not, your team must immediately prepare for a trial by evaluating the known facts, researching the law, gathering and preserving evidence and witnesses to preparing for trial.  Moreover, your team must ensure you are receiving Due Process as you are interact with the criminal justice system.
