This involves using video and phone conferences and communicating via phone and e-mail to limit in-person interaction.

No One Wants Charges Hanging Over Them
If you are involved in an active criminal case, you should carefully monitor the court website and call your attorney to find out what is expected of you. Do not miss any hearings or other court-mandated requirements without confirmation from your lawyer.
No one wants accusations and criminal charges hanging over their heads for any longer than necessary. Being charged with a crime is stressful enough, and to have that process extend longer than it should just add to the stress.
