Who issues a Prayer for Judgment Continued (PJC)?
The presiding Judge chooses whether to issue a Prayer for Judgment Continued (PJC). The Prosecutor doesn’t have the authority to give you one. However, the Prosecutor does have a “right to be heard” in open court, and may approve or disapprove of the PJC. However, in the end, it is the decision of the Court. No one is entitled to a PJC. It is not “yours” to use or not use. It is the Court’s decision.
