By the next setting the court will usually want an update on how you want to proceed with your case.  They may also give the option of talking to a prosecutor to work out your case.  Your options are generally to accept a plea bargain or to accept a plea.  Sometimes the court will give you one more setting to decide what you want to do.  If you are not sure whether or not the offer that you receive is a good offer, you should visit with a criminal defense attorney to get an idea of what is best for your situation.
