How do you get a trail with a judge?
2 attorney answers
Your question is confusing-- not sure what you mean by "cleared by the VA." Your friend has a right to a trial. The trial can typically be with a jury, but can also be without a jury, depending on the rules in the court where your friend is charges.
Anyone charged with a felony can also waive their right to a trial. One does that by entering a plea, typically a guilty plea. A guilty plea ends the case. The defendant serves a sentence, and then moves on with his or her life. But it is important to know what the potential outcomes are before making such a decision. I hope you find this answer helpful.
The response I have provided is general in nature, and does not create an attorney-client relationship. My practice is based in Rhode Island, and the law and practice in other states or jurisdictions may be different.

Your question doesn't make much sense. Your friend needs to speak with their attorney.
