    When a motion to supress evidence is filed in a criminal case does a trial still need to take place or will the judge make a decision regarding the motion to supress the evidence on a pre trial basis?

    Generally, a judge will hold a hearing on the motion if it is legally sufficient.

    So the Hearing will come first and if the motion is denied a trial will take place?
