Pretrial Services allows qualifying individuals to be released from jail while awaiting a court hearing. Utilizing the least restrictive conditions possible, Pretrial will:
When released, clients will schedule an intake appointment to meet with a Pretrial Case Manager. During the intake, the case manager will gather needed information and help determine the best plan for pretrial success. Information gathered may include but is not limited to the following: education/employment history, mental health history, substance use history, etc. The case manager will also review any release requirements the client may have been given upon release.
Throughout supervision clients will attend appointments with their case manager and may also be assigned to attend and complete classes. Other requirements such as urinalysis testing may also be ordered by the Judge.
On average you will be supervised for 90+ days. This length is determined by individual needs as well as court proceedings.
Your Pretrial case manager will notify the judge who may issue a warrant. It’s important to continue checking in with your case manager.
Your CJS case manager will make many attempts to reach you. Your release agreement will have your case managers contact information. Contact your case manager as soon as possible. If your case manager is unable to contact you, the Judge will be notified, and a warrant may be issued.
You can seek private counsel, utilize free legal clinics or the court's self-help section, or an attorney may be appointed to you (if you qualify) when you attend court.
Your release agreement contains your assigned case managers information. If you no longer have their information, please call (385) 468-3500
