The Circuit Court has approved a new form (CCR C-25) for use when a defendant, post-sentencing, is to be transferred to a therapeutic program, either immediately or at the conclusion of an active sentence.  The form’s purpose is to make sure an inmate is actually transferred as intended and it provides a way for the Sheriff to confirm and approve the entity or person carrying out the transfer. Also, the form identifies the lawyer to contact, in addition to District 29 and the Clerk’s office, if the inmate is not transferred as intended.

 

On the sentencing date, this form must be fully completed, endorsed and submitted to the sentencing judge for entry.  The form will then be associated with the jail card for transmission to inmate records. While it is preferable for counsel to use the link so that it can be typed, there will be forms available in the courtrooms.

 

This form resulted from a Sheriff’s request and after collaborative consultation with the Office of the Commonwealth Attorney, the Office of the Public Defender, the Office of the Sheriff, District 29 Probation and Parole and the Circuit Court Clerk’s Office.
