When should I contact the Prosecutor to discuss my arrest and possible resolution of the case?

Do not contact the Police Prosecutor until 1 week prior to your arraignment. 

Although there are exceptions, typically, an arraignment date will be approximately 8 weeks after an incident. Those accused of offenses who wish to discuss their case should not contact the Prosecutor until at least 5 weeks after an incident. The Prosecutor’s office is not in a realistic position to discuss cases with the accused until this time.
