No, it does not seem that their court rules stipulate 30 days. They sent a pink piece of paper that stated the following:
As a defendent, you are entitled to the following:
the right to bring a lawyer, at your expense.
The right to present evidence and examine witnesses in court.
The right to request from the prosecutor a witness list and a copy of the citing officer's sworn statement if it will be offered into evidence at the hearing. You must make the request in writing at least 30 days before the hearing, and the witness list and citing officer's sworn statement should be given to you at least 7 days before the hearing.
There is no reference to an IRLJ or FWMCLIR with that statement. So, can they ding me if I serve the prosecutor in less than 30 days based on this mailing that seemingly ignores the actual statute?
On another note, I am requesting the copies of the latest certification for the SMD. Am I reading IRLJ 6.6 correctly that in order to get that paperwork I need to file for that 30 days in advance? I am unclear on what they are referring to in regards to "expert." I do not intend on calling an expert in SMD's to testify.
