How will I know when and where I go to court?

When formal charges are filed with the Clerk's office, you will be notified by mail of (1) an arraignment date if you do not have counsel, or (2) a status conference date if you do have counsel. Arraignment and/or status conference dates are usually 30-45 days after the formal charges have been filed with the Clerk. All notices will be sent to the address that was given at the time of arrest. If you bonded out of jail, your bondsman will be notified as well. Your case number, type of court event, date/time, and location of hearing will be displayed on all court notices. You can view the details of your case online. Visit the website,
