Can I write a letter to a judge?

Yes, but you must file any written communication with the clerk, and you must provide copies to the prosecutor. Written communication must include your name and case number. You must clearly state what you want the court to do and why it should be done. If your motion is properly filed, the prosecutor will be allowed ten days to file a response, and the court will rule within a reasonable time after that.
