Misdemeanors and felony matters
If you missed your court date and a warrant has been issued for your arrest, you must appear at the clerks window before 11:30 Monday-Friday and request to be placed on calendar. Your case will be heard the same day at 1:30 pm. If a felony arrest warrant was issued for your arrest you must surrender yourself to the Calaveras County Jail Monday through Friday before 10:00 a.m. in order to appear before the judge on the in custody calendar the same day.
If you wish to appear before they judge for any reason, you may submit an Application for Immediate Hearing. This form is located under Common Local Forms. You must complete the form and submit it to the court. Your request for hearing will be given to a Judge for review.
