Honorable Roger N. Nanovic

President Judge

Carbon County Court of Common Pleas

Carbon County Courthouse

P.O. Box 131

Jim Thorpe, PA  18229-0131

 

Dear President Judge Nanovic:

 

            The Committee has reviewed proposed Carbon County Rule 106 that was submitted to the Committee pursuant to Rule of Criminal Procedure 105(D). The Committee has determined that the rule is not inconsistent with the statewide Rules of Criminal Procedure.

 

            The Committee's review of the rule does not include determining the wisdom of the rule, the substantive validity of the provisions of the rule, or the merits of the rule.

           

            The proposed rule may now be published in accordance with Rule 105(E).  As required by Rule 105(F)(2), the rule also is required to be published on the Unified Judicial System's web site at http://ujsportal.pacourts.us/localrules/ruleselection.aspx.

 

            The procedures for publishing the rule are explained on the Help page of the UJS Portal.  The rule should be uploaded to the UJS Portal at the time of publication or, if the rule had been uploaded to the UJS Portal prior to publication, you must inform the Committee of the publication date, either by telephone, mail, or e-mail.

 

            One final point concerning this rule.  The programming of the UJS Portal requires that local rules or administrative orders be associated with a matching statewide rule. Accordingly, you will need to assign a rule number matching the applicable statewide rule. Alternatively, if there is no corresponding statewide rule to which the administrative order


can be associated, the AOPC has established on the UJS portal a generic "Administrative Order rule" to meet this programming requirement.  These types of Administrative Orders are to be keyed to this generic rule.  There are instructions in the UJS Portal Help page explaining how this is to be accomplished.

 

If you have any questions about how to proceed under the February 1, 2009 changes to Rule 105, please contact the Committee's staff.

 

The Committee appreciates the efforts that you have taken to ensure the quality of your local rules.

 

                                                                                                                       

 

                                                                                                                       

 

                                                                                                                        Paul M. Yatron

                                                                                                                        Chair

RULE 106      CONTINUANCES IN SUMMARY AND COURT CASES

 

          (a)      All Motions for Continuance shall be filed at least two (2) working days before the scheduled event.  Motions shall be filed pursuant to Pa.R.Crim.P. 575 or can be filed by utilizing the attached form titled Motion for Continuance - Criminal.  All continuances must indicate the case number, defendant's name, type of event being continued, date of the event being continued and number of previous continuances.  A Rule 600 speedy trial waiver must be attached if the defendant consents to this motion for continuance.  The moving party shall secure the signature or indicate the position of the opposing party.

 

            (b)        When a Motion for Continuance is requested because of counsel's attachment in another Court, a copy of the attachment shall accompany the Motion for Continuance.  If the reason for filing a continuance is that the defendant is ill, receiving medical treatment or in rehabilitation, the attorney/pro se party must provide documentation from the treating physician or other qualified person documenting the defendant's illness or treatment, and, in the case of defendant's rehabilitation, a written statement from the facility at which the defendant is receiving treatment, confirming admission and continued care at such facility.

 

          (c)      When a defendant has two or more cases scheduled for the same date and time, only one continuance motion/form listing all the case numbers is required to be filed.  When a continuance is requested for events scheduled for different dates or at different times, a separate continuance motion/form must be filed for each event.

 

          (d)     Upon filing the motion/form in the Clerk of Courts Office, concurrent service of the Motion/Form for Continuance shall be pursuant to Pa.R.Crim.P. 576. 

 

          (e)      Any motion filed that is not in compliance with this rule shall be entertained only if the opportunity to timely file it did not exist previously, the defendant was not aware of the grounds for the motion, or the interests of justice so require.

 

          Failure of any motion/form for continuance to comply with this rule shall be grounds for denying the requested continuance.
