WOODLAND, CA – The Yolo County Superior Court discussed the details of an unhoused accused who has continuously not shown up to court because of her living circumstances, ultimately causing difficulty in communication between her and the court.
The accused is facing three charges, including conspiracy to commit a crime, grand theft and violating probation.
The accused currently resides in Los Angeles but because of the distance and her financial situation, being unhoused and having communication problems, Deputy Public Defender Martha Sequeira asked Judge Tom M. Dyer to consider these matters moving forward.
“I’m just not sure how we’re going to help the accused because she’s so far away. We’re going to ask to come back in a couple of weeks,” said DPD Sequeira.
Additionally, the court is unaware if she has been convicted in any other county since her last arrest.
DPD Sequeira continued, saying the prosecutor is “going to talk to probation to see if we could do something because the accused has been arrested on this case on the warrant before and then they never picked her up…(and) follow up so see if there was ever even a conviction out of that other county.”
