What happens at a pretrial hearing in a criminal case?

A pretrial hearing is a meeting that occurs before a trial action begins. These are generally attended by the plaintiff, defendant, the judge, the lawyers, and sometimes other parties. Pretrial hearings aim to resolve some of the legal issues before the trial begins.

Similarly one may ask, what does it mean if you have a warrant for PTR?

If a person violates the terms of their probation, the State's Attorney, prosecutor or probation department may file a Petition to Revoke Probation (PTR) and ask the court to issue a warrant for your arrest — a PTR Warrant.

What does Jtr stand for in court?

Without seeing the actual website, these are what I would expect the abbreviations mean. CC3 is the Court, probably County Court #3. DM1 is a the Court, probably Magistrate Court #1. PTRW is pretrial hearing with witnesses. JTR is jury trial.

What does it mean when a court case is under review?

A case review is held at least 30 days after the defendant pleads not guilty. Its purpose is to determine whether the charge can be resolved without the need for a trial. A court registrar usually conducts the case review, rather than a judge.
