Please be advised that starting immediately, continuances off the trial or arraignment calendar will only be granted with specific written permission of the Court. If either side wishes to continue a case, a motion should be filed with the Judge presiding over that particular arraignment PRIOR to the date of the court proceeding. The State, in keeping with our aggressive trial policy, does not generally seek a continuance. Based upon the Court's directive, we will no longer consent to continuances either. - Kelly Burke, District Attorney.
