The Honorable John Duran and the Honorable Frank Sedillo oversee sessions of Outreach Court, which began in 2002.
This Court is unique in that it takes the Court to the community. It is scheduled monthly and holds court in locations convenient to the defendants. Cases heard in this Court have not been adjudicated, but are mostly in warrant status.
To qualify, a defendant must get a referral from an outside agency and provide documentation to the Court that he or she is actively working on improving their quality of life and addressing the issues that initiated homelessness. The Judge, three private defense attorneys, and two Assistant District Attorneys work with defendants in Outreach Court sessions.
