LCrRLJ 3.4 Personal Appearance Required A defendant who has signed a promise to appear for a hearing or trial must personally appear or submit a signed acknowledgment for the next agreed date. Failure to personally appear or submit such a signed acknowledgment is grounds to issue a warrant for the defendant's arrest and to strike all further hearings until the defendant next appears in person before the court. Represented defendants may file a waiver of attendance permitting their attorney to appear on their behalf. The form attached to these rules may be used for waiver of appearance. The defendant must personally appear at trial, at arraignments for all domestic violence offenses, and for preliminary appearances following an arrest and release for driving under the influence or physical control charges.
