Modifications to Local Criminal Rule 6.1(b), Local Civil Rule 3.10 and Local Criminal Rule 57.17, and Local Criminal Rule 32.2

 

Modifications were made to Local Criminal Rule 6.1(b) regarding Grand Jury Practice, Local Civil Rule 3.10 and Local Criminal Rule 57.17 regarding the Miscellaneous Docket, and Local Criminal Rule 32.2 regarding Time Limits on PSRs and Sentencing Memoranda.

 

Local Criminal Rule 6.1(b) was modified to address the supervision of the Grand Jury, which will be performed by the judge who does the impanelment (either the Chief Judge or his/her designate) rather than by the miscellaneous judge. The changes to Local Civil Rule 3.10 and and Local Criminal Rule 57.17 address the elimination of the supervision of the Grand Jury by the miscellaneous judge. The primary changes to Local Criminal Rule 32.2 increased from 70 days to 98 days (fourteen (14) weeks) for the scheduling of the sentencing date from the date of plea or conviction and established a deadline (no later than 3 days in advance of sentencing) for filing responses to the positions to sentencing factors. The Probation Department needs more time for PSRs, and the Court was frequently faced with last-minute objections after the final PSR was issued. Additional changes were modifying references from days to weeks.
