The defendant, David Moe, through his attorney, filed a notice of disposition today (Monday, April 22, 2013). A notice of disposition is a court filing notifying the court that an agreement has been reached between the prosecution and the defense where the defendant is given an opportunity to plead guilty. The terms and details of the plea agreement are not available publicly until after the change of plea hearing. The court has yet set the change of plea hearing for May 30, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. It is important to note that the defendant can always change his mind and invoke his right to a jury trial, although that does not happen often.

David Moe appeared in U.S. District Court before U.S. Magistrate Judge Kristen L. Mix. Moe waived formal reading of the charges (the indictment). He was then arraigned, with his attorney entering a pro forma "not guilty" plea on his behalf. It is usual for defendants to enter a plea of not guilty at their arraignments; this gets the court process started. A tentative trial date of October 22, 2012 has been set. It is not uncommon for trial dates, especially the first setting, to be continued or changed to a later date, although in many instances, cases can ultimately be resolved without a trial when defendants choose to plead guilty.
