Online Case Data

The Criminal Division of the Circuit Court handles all  

  • felony cases 
  • misdemeanor cases originating by Grand Jury action 
  • misdemeanor appeals from the General District and Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Courts 
  • appealed traffic infractions 

Note: Traffic infractions are handled by the General District Court, unless appealed from the General District or Juvenile & Domestic Relations District Court. 

Before contacting the Circuit Court to inquire about the status of a traffic infraction case or pre-payment of a traffic fine, it is important to ascertain beforehand which Court has jurisdiction. This will prevent any unnecessary delay in processing. Unlike the District Courts that have separate traffic dockets, the Circuit Court integrates traffic infraction appeals into its criminal docket. 

Please be advised that the Circuit Court Clerk's Office is not in a position to provide information regarding criminal charges or case dispositions over the telephone or via e-mail.
