What Does it Mean if My Status Conference or Preliminary Hearing Got Vacated in Maricopa County Superior Court?

By Aaron Black | February, 07, 2013

When your case gets vacated at the status conference or preliminary hearing date it means your case is most likely going to the grand jury. The grand jury is a secret proceeding where it is decided if there is enough evidence to hold your case over for trial.

If your case was vacated, formal charges by way of an indictment are coming. You are now facing serious felony charges and need to get in contact with a serious felony lawyer.
