I see that you have come to us today regarding a criminal charge.

I’m sorry to hear about your issues here, hopefully, we can get them solved quickly.

You would need to inform the court as well as the jail that he has a zoom hearing that he must attend. The court must have facilities set up for him to attend court. Typically, they will bring him to the courthouse in person to attend the hearing. Obviously, that is not happening right now, even in some criminal cases.

But if there is a zoom hearing the jail should have computers set up or some way for him to video conference into the hearing to attend.

But you should not trust that the jail will do the right thing here. You should let the jail know immediately so that they have adequate time to prepare as well as alert to judge that he is in jail and needs to appear by Zoom.

Customer
