LCrR 3.1. ARRAIGNMENT, TRIAL AND OTHER HEARINGS. (a) Arraignment Order. Criminal trials shall be set at the time of arraignment. At the same time, the court shall schedule an omnibus hearing and a trial status conference. The order on arraignment shall specify whether defendant shall be required to appear at omnibus hearing. (b) Omnibus Hearing. Unless an agreed omnibus order has been submitted by both sides prior to or at the time of the omnibus hearing, defendant’s attorney of record shall appear personally at the omnibus hearing. If the order on arraignment has required defendant’s personal attendance at omnibus, defendant shall personally appear, or a bench warrant may issue. (c) Status Hearing. Both defendant and defendant’s attorney of record shall appear personally at the status hearing. Failure to appear at status hearing is grounds for sanctions and/or issuance of a bench warrant for defendant’s arrest. [Adopted effective September 1, 2004.]
