Case Processing
JMS uses events and actions to process and track cases.  Many processes are automatically performed by the system based on the current event of the case or on an action performed.  For instance, a criminal case is entered with an arraignment as the next scheduled event.  The system will automatically make an entry to the judge’s calendar on the day scheduled, make an entry to the ROA, and print the notice to  appear.
SID Number
Every criminal case entered into the JMS ystem is assigned a temporary SID# (state ID #).  This number is then changed to the permanent SID# if one is assigned.  This number allows the JMS system to track all activity within the court for a particular defendant.  This is especially beneficial if the defendant has more than one case where money is owed the court, or the defendant is on probation for more than one case.
Notices
Separate judgment and sentencing information is recorded for each offense.  All money assessed, probation conditions, jail time, community service, and treatment programs ordered can be tracked.  The proper judgment form is also generated automatically.
Judgments
Separate judgment and sentencing information is recorded for each offense.  All money assessed, probation conditions, jail time, community service, and treatment programs ordered can be tracked.  The proper judgment form is also generated automatically.
Calendar
Entries to the JMS calendar are made automatically when event codes are
used that reflect an update to the calendar.  Manual entries can also be
made as necessary.  The calendar can be viewed by month with scheduled
days highlighted, or by week with the types and number of hearings
displayed.  Detailed information about the cases scheduled is available in
both modes.
Register Of Actions
The ROA is a chronological listing of all events, actions, or other information the court wishes to retain on a case.  The majority of entries are made automatically by the system as the case is updated.  Manual entries can also be made as needed.
Reports
In addition to required reports that the court must produce, the JMS system generates various management reports.  These reports include case aging, case status, and assignment.  The court can also produce ad hoc reports using a query program.
