Shawnee County Court Important Notice- Jail Time & Traffic/DUI Dockets

24 Nov 2020 4:26 PM | Amanda Kohlman (Administrator)
1.     Tuesday morning Traffic Dockets at 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. are cancelled through December 31, 2020. Afternoon traffic hearings and trials will be held as scheduled.
 
The month of January will be used to catch up on cases originally scheduled during the last half of November and December. The District Attorney’s Office will do all it can to resolve cases.  Retained and appointed defense attorneys should contact the DA’s office and do all they can to resolve cases without the necessity of court appearances. The Judge and attorneys, both prosecutor and defense, will be available Tuesday mornings on Traffic Docket days to resolve any cases that can be disposed of by agreement.
 
2.   We will continue to hold DUI dockets as scheduled.  Again, the District Attorney’s Office and defense attorneys should do all they can to resolve cases without the necessity of court appearances or bringing clients into the courthouse.
 
3.   All previously scheduled jail time is postponed effective immediately and will be rescheduled after January 8, 2021.  The Amended Administrative Order setting this out was provided previously.  Individuals are being directed to call the court to reschedule their time.
