This court does allow off-docket matters to be brought before the court’s attention, however the court will only hear off-docket matters at the conclusion of docket. Counsels may approach the court no sooner than 12pm to bring forth these matters to the court.

Court does grant walk-through bonds for the defendants. Be advised that the defendant must be PRESENT in court. Zoom appearances for walk-throughs will not suffice and will not be addressed by the court or ADAs. The defendant must have a bondsman present and in court while bond is being addressed. If a bondsman is not present, the defendant will go into custody and post bond from the jail.

Off-docket Resets:

To request an off docket reset, you may email the coordinator 2-5 days prior to the court date. Be advised that off-docket resets do not take precedence to the daily docket. If you have not received confirmation that the reset request was granted, your client is expected to attend court as initially docketed. If you email the court within 24 hours of the next court setting, your request will be denied and client will be expected to appear, unless due to unforeseen emergencies. If the defendant has not been to court within 90 days, an off-docket reset request will be denied.
