For the purpose of providing uniformity of procedure in all Divisions of the General Sessions Criminal Court, Local Rule 4 is amended by adding the following sentence to the third paragraph:

“Any attorney or firm representing an in custody defendant in any General Sessions Criminal Court in Shelby County, whose charges have been held to the action of the Shelby County Grand Jury but have not yet been indicted, shall be deemed to continue representation of that defendant for the purpose of filing any necessary pre-indictment motions until such time as that defendant is released on bond, is indicted on the pending charges, or has had the warrant holding that defendant in custody is dismissed, unless excused by the court for good cause.”

This amendment is effective May 1, 2019.
