Attorney Recommendation Procedures
Pursuant to the Supreme Courts “Minimum Operating Standards” Rule 7 that updated Rule 37.04 effective September 20, 2016 the following procedures are required:
If the violation is for a DWI or non-traffic matter, follow the same steps indicated above. The Prosecuting Attorney will review, and in most cases, a court appearance WILL be required for final Plea.
If discovery is requested, please file a request with the Prosecuting Attorney. If requesting video discovery, you will need to include a blank DVD-R and a return mailing envelope with postage affixed.Once the Prosecuting Attorney has ALL of the required documents, he will respond to your request. If you are provided a Recommendation/Plea form, the form will have a payment due date and a court date. The original plea form will need to be signed by you and your client and returned to the court for approval by the judge. Payments will not be accepted, and the charges, if offered, will not be amended until the signed plea form and payment is received. If the payment and court date pass with no further announcement, the recommendation may be withdrawn.
the Prosecuting attorney is available in-person on Court evenings.
