That depends upon what STATE is involved, but even then every court is different. Just because your trial is scheduled at a certain time doesn't mean it will happen at that time. It could be an all-day event.

Or it could take just 10 minutes to find you guilty.

My case just fyi with 3 witnesses lasted about 70 minutes.

The judge ruled that I received a reduced fine and penalty.

But I agree it can vary AND there is no guarantee you will start on time either. Especially if other matters are on the schedule before you.

It depends on the case and you are liable to appear before the court if you got a notice to addend the trial.

In our small town the judge has a 90 minute limit on all traffic ticket cases. No matter how many witnesses or exhibits.
