If you are represented by an attorney, you should contact your attorney who will contact the court.
If you do not have an attorney, you can contact one of the court clerks at 662-323-2525 ext 7 and state the reason for your request. However, the court seldom grants continuance requests. Court is considered a priority over other activities such as work and school, and you are expected to appear at your scheduled date and time. Failure to appear may result in a warrant for your arrest. Examples of valid continuance requests are “I have been admitted to the hospital” or “I am in jail”. Also, the court will expect evidence of your hospital or jail admission.
*** If you have bonded through a bonding company, you MUST appear at your scheduled date and time. Failure to do so will result in a warrant for your arrest.***
