TEMPORARY SUSPENSION OF JAIL SENTENCES FOR OUT-OF-CUSTODY DEFENDANTS
The Shawnee County Department of Corrections is experiencing an increase in COVID cases, and the corresponding need for testing and quarantine. All persons ordered to report to the jail to serve previously scheduled jail sentences during the time frame of November 12, 2020 through January 8, 2021 are subject to this Order.
Effective immediately, all previously-ordered jail sentences in the Shawnee County jail for out-of-custody defendants shall be postponed until after January 8, 2021. Any persons ordered by the court to serve a jail sentence between November 12, 2020 and January 8, 2021, should not report to the jail.
Any persons ordered to serve their sentence anytime between the dates of
November 12, 2020 through January 8, 2021 are hereby ordered to contact Shawnee County District Court, Division 7, at 785-251-6310, to reschedule the court-ordered jail sentence. You must contact Division 7 during regular business hours, and within 72 hours of your previously-ordered duty to report.
