Trial number 3 for 2012 starts tomorrow. It's a misdemeanor DWI case. I think it will be relatively quick, which is the benefit of misdemeanor trials. They tend to be much shorter in duration than felony trials. And there are only 6 people on the jury, which means jury selection is faster, too.
I think I'm on track to outpace the number of trials I had in all of last year. It's only April and I'm already at #3 for the year. I had three total in all of last year. So, if in the next 8 months I have another trial (which I definitely will, since I've got a number of cases that are on track for trial), then I beat all of last year's trial record. Whew...
I've also definitely outpaced the contested omnibus hearings from last year. Last year I had three of them. This year, I've already had six, with two more still scheduled for this month.
I'm a contesting-things machine lately.
