A big thank you to Mark Cantrell for sharing this with us.
I wanted to share some info I received regarding getting a case on calendar in SB county. For example, you have a guy in custody and the DA is willing to deal it as CTS. I have also used this method to request a bail hearing. I suggest that you pass this along to all our RCCDBA members.
Time Critical Matters
To submit a calendar request, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 11:00 a.m. to request a future calendar date, using the following format:
Email Subject: Time Critical Request (Indicate case jurisdiction, i.e. JT, RC, SB, VV)
In the body of the email, include:
– Case number
– Defendant name
– Booking number, if applicable
– Counsels’ names & contact information
– Whether defendant is in-custody or not
+ If defendant is in-custody whether presence is required
– Qualifying factor for time critical status
– Calendar date
Any requests received after 11:00 a.m. will not be processed until the following day.
In my experience, the clerk will email you promptly and tell you what to do.
