If your car is set for preliminary hearing it will be heal at 9:00a.m. before Judge Ramirez.  A preliminary hearing is in essence a mini trial.  At preliminary hearing the state must produce evidence (witnesses) to establish probable cause (a more likely than not standard) that a crime has been committed and that the person accused was the one who committed the crime.  If Judge Ramirez determines that the State has met their burden then she will bind the case over for district court arraignment.
