Is there any stage at court when Gladue does not apply?

Gladue does not apply to the trial process.

Gladue applies at your bail hearing, which happens before the trial. Gladue applies again if you are tried and found guilty or you plead guilty. The judge then has to apply Gladue when deciding your sentence. If you are sent to jail, Gladue applies to your parole hearing in jail.
