To prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the jail, the Court prefers and has been working to enable incarcerated defendants to appear remotely for continuance motions, pleas, and waivers of preliminary hearing. The plan calls for Defendants to be brought to the courtroom only for trials and preliminary hearings unless circumstances warrant otherwise. The following document describes updated procedures enabling attorneys to communicate plea offers, etc., to their incarcerated clients during court hours. Current court procedures such as obtaining defendants' original signatures on forms prior to court hearing are still in effect and are also highlighted in this update.
