Information on scheduling for:
35-Day Call is the time set for a status check of criminal cases. It is the time for a criminal defendant to check in with the court. Typically, the defendant and their attorney will do one of three things at 35-Day Call: 1) File a trial report, which states that the defendant is ready to go to trial; 2) Change the plea from not guilty to guilty, and possibly schedule a sentencing date; or 3) Request a set over, which gives them more time to figure out what to do with the case.
35-Day Call is held every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday at 2:30 p.m. and is scheduled approximately 35 days from the date the defendant is arraigned by the court.
Defendants and their attorneys must appear in person for 35-Day Call at 2:30 p.m. on the date assigned at their arraignment. Negotiations must be completed and changes of plea or other dispositions will be completed at this appearance. A bench warrant will be issued for any defendant who fails to appear for their 35-Day Call date.
Sentencings are scheduled Monday through Friday. Please refer to the Schedule of Routine Court Proceedings for the sentencing schedule. Sentencings are generally scheduled no more than two weeks from the date of change of plea or conviction. Judges are assigned sentencings on a daily basis by the Presiding Judge.
Probation Violation hearings are scheduled for Monday mornings at 8:30 a.m. Defendants need to check at the Circuit Court Information Booth (on the 2nd Floor of the Courthouse) to find out which courtroom their hearing is being held in. Please refer to the Probation Violation section of the Criminal webpage for more information.
Scheduling a Trial Date and Trial Call
Criminal trials are normally set approximately 90 days from the date of arraignment. If the defendant is in custody, the case will be set within 60 days from the date of arrest (unless the defendant files a motion to waive the 60-day rule). Domestic relations cases are set within six months from the date the petition or show cause was filed. Civil cases are set within eleven months from the date the complaint was filed.
Trial Call is scheduled for 9:30 a.m., Tuesday through Friday on the day the case is scheduled for trial. At Trial Call, defendants, plaintiffs and their attorneys let the judge know if they are ready for trial. You may check at the information booth to find out which courtroom Trial Call will be held in. If the case is going forward then it will be assigned a judge and a courtroom and the trial will start that day.
