We suggest that you report early on the day of the trial to the County Attorney's Office on the fourth floor of the courthouse. You can remain in the office until the case is called for trial (many trials are set for the same time in the same courtroom).
Sometimes, the abuser will change his plea to guilty. If that happens, you will not have to go to the courtroom and can simply leave without having to see your abuser. However, if the abuser still wants to have a trial, you will accompany the deputy county attorney to the courtroom, where you will testify. Also present in the courtroom will be the judge, the court reporter, the bailiff, and at least one law enforcement officer. Please let us know your concerns.
