Stet Docket Law and Legal Definition

The stet docket is an inactive docket maintained by the state's attorney's office. If a case is placed on the stet docket, the defendant typically must waive his/her right to a speedy trial in the original case. The case remains on the stet docket for a specified period, during which, either the defendant or the state can ask the court to place the case back on the active docket for trial. Usually the prosecutor doesn't think the chances of a conviction are likely.There may be conditions attached when placing the case on the stet docket, such as no contact between the defendant and the victim/complainant.
