Idaho Criminal Rule 18. Pretrial Conference.

At any time prior to trial, the court, upon motion of any party or upon its own motion, may order one or more conferences to consider such matters as would promote a fair and expeditious trial. At the conclusion of the conference the court shall file a memorandum of the matters agreed upon. No admissions made by the defendant or the defendant's attorney at the conference shall be used against the defendant unless the admissions are reduced to writing and signed by the defendant and the defandant's attorney. This rule shall not be invoked in a felony case where a defendant is not represented by counsel, except upon defendant's request. 


(Adopted December 27, 1979, effective July 1, 1980.)
