Arrested during Covid19 pandemic – avoid longer stay in jail
Risk of staying in jail much longer than otherwise
Covid19 pandemic has made life difficult for everyone. The social and economic activities suddenly came to a halt and now we are facing uncertain times in getting them back on track.
In these times, if someone gets an arrest warrant or is arrested, it puts him at even bigger risk. The social distancing in prisons is not easy and puts the inmates at bigger risk despite some extraordinary measures taken by authorities. With courts restricted to emergency hearings only, the arrested person carries the risk of staying in jail much longer than otherwise.
How courts are functioning during Coronavirus Pandemic
Some of New Jersey municipal courts reopened for remote proceedings in the last week of April, ending a month-long suspension imposed to stem the spread of the coronavirus. Individual matters can be conducted remotely with the consent of all parties.
The state Supreme Court further announced that the local courts could resume full sessions by video or phone on May 11. All jury trials and grand jury hearings, however, will remain suspended through May 31.
