    Answered . In Manhattan you will usually report to Room 200 on the second floor of 100 Centre Street, Manhattan Criminal Court with a compliance letter showing that you have completed your community service. You will not have to see the judge or the prosecutor if it is just a compliance appearance and the ACD was already granted. If it is an attorney appearance with a judge in a criminal part then the prosecutor is there. If you have to do three days of community service that is 7 hours for each day or 21 hours and the letter must say that you have complete that amount of hours.
