Covid-19 | Montgomery & Robertson County Court Proceedings
In compliance with Tennessee Supreme Court Orders, the Circuit Courts of Montgomery and Robertson Counties have limited in-person hearings to constitutionally required hearings of incarcerated defendants during this time. Our legal team developed the following post to expand on Montgomery & Robertson County court proceedings for specific case matters.
How Criminal Proceedings Will Be Handled In The Meantime
The Judges of the 19th Judicial district have created procedures for accepting settlement agreements remotely. We can still help you settle any outstanding criminal matters if you are willing and able to sign:
- A plea petition
- Any ancillary documents associated with a plea
- A waiver of an in-person hearing prior to your court date.
If you have an arraignment set, we can have you sign a waiver of arraignment, enter a notice of appearance on your behalf, and get to work on your case. We will either settle it remotely or set it for a trial and begin preparing when this public health crisis has ended.
What If You Have A Loved One That’s Currently Incarcerated?
If you have a friend or family member who is currently incarcerated, the courts are doing everything they can to move those cases forward as usual. So for any new arrests, call us. We can either resolve those cases or negotiate a bond reduction until such time that those matters can be resolved. There is no reason for your loved ones to remain incarcerated during this crisis. Give us a call so we can help them out.
Domestic Assault Case | Court Proceedings
IF you have been charged with Domestic assault and due to conditions of release are unable to return home, let us know. Special procedures have been put in place to have these motions heard without the presence of the parties in court, but some extra paperwork must be prepared ahead of time. Call us as soon as possible so we can get you back in your home.
Juvenile Case | Court Proceedings
If you have a juvenile who has been detained due to a delinquency charge, those cases are moving forward as well through remote hearings. Hiring an attorney who can contact the Youth Services Officers and get to work on your case immediately can get your child home as soon as possible.
