    Okay, I'm trying. I find one criminal case for Christopher Clements that has a status hearing January 13, 2020 at 10am in front of Judge Deborah Bernini for a 30 minute status conference. Does that sound right? I think it is because the case number is CR20183978. There is no other information and that appears to be the only information public for Pima county.
