REQUESTS FOR RECOMMENDATIONS and DISCOVERY
Requests for recommendations must be sent in writing to the Prosecuting Attorney Office address as follows:
Prosecuting Attorney's Office
City of Festus
100 Park Avenue
Festus, MO 63028
And include the following:
- A self-addressed, stamped envelope (recommendations will not be mailed without one);
- A copy of your entry of appearance filed with the court, which should contain the Defendent's name, citation/case number(s), initial court date, and charge(s), and/or provide a copy of the ticket; and
- Any relevant documentation that would assist the prosecutor in making a recommendation, i.e. proof of insurance, registration, reinstatement etc... NOTE: If your client's charge(s) involves a motor vehicle accident, a copy of their insurance card is not sufficient. You must provide either a letter from your client's insurer verifying valid liability insurance on the date of the accident or proof of restitution.
Counsel will receive a written recommendation from the prosecutory by mail with a new court date. It is counsel's responsibility to notify the defendant of the recommendation. The recommendation will indicate if an appearance is required, otherwise recommendations may be acdepted by the attorney and client signing the recommendation form and returning it to the court with payment in full by the date and time given. Do NOT forward payment to the prosecutor's office. The payment will not be processed by the prosecutor's office.
