Covid 19 is challenging the court system to balance the rights of criminal defendants with the need to stop the spread of this virus.
Different counties are addressing this challenge in different ways depending upon the custody status of the individual defendant and the nature of the case.
Here is a link to the Sacramento County Superior Court website for the latest information in Sacramento County.
If the case you are interested in is in a county other than Sacramento, please be sure to check with the court website for that particular county. Most courts in Northern California have made it easy to find updated information on the Covid-19 situation on the homepage of their website.
See below for the latest Covid-19 information from other counties in Northern California.
