ALL ATTORNEYS may choose to appear either in person or on Zoom.
Each operating courtroom will continue to be staffed with an in person Assistant Public Defender, in addition to the judge, court clerk, bailiff, probation officer (optional) and correctional officer(s).
Inmates will be brought to court only for hearings, trials, and very few pleas only with the judge’s express approval.
If an inmate was not transported but wishes to accept a plea that will result in release from custody, Corrections will bring them on Zoom on a staggered basis.
As of this date, all other normal court operations will remain unchanged.
