In accordance with the Florida Supreme Court Administrative Order, ALL jury trials have been cancelled and will be rescheduled once the Courts resume normal operations.
In an effort to ensure public safety and the welfare of all who participate in the administration of justice, all "non-essential" hearings will be done via video conferencing or by phone.
All Pre-Trial Conferences will be done via the CISCO link found at the top of this website.
We are able to conduct in-person hearings once again, however, space in the Courtroom is limited and all person MUST wear a mask.
Virtual Evidentiary or Discovery Hearings are also able to heard heard and are more readily available since there is no cleaning of the Courtroom that needs to occur between hearings.
To setup attend a hearing via Video Conferencing please email Isaac Wootson, Judicial Assistant to Judge DuBois at email@example.com. Video conferencing is only available using the Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge Internet Browsers.
Defendant Out of Custody
The Court will accept a written plea in absentia by using the form below. The plea form must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org with the terms of the negotiated plea agreement. The Assistant State Attorney must also be included on the email to the Court. All Defendants will be given 365 days to pay all fines and costs associated with the plea.
Defendant in Custody
In jail plea's can be taken but must be coordinated for certain days. In order to schedule an "IN CUSTODY" plea conference we must receive the case number, Defendants last name, verified terms of negotiated plea, and whether the plea will result in the release of the Defendant from custody. Preference will be given to resolution of cases which will result in the release of the Defendant.
NO VALID DL and DWLS CHARGES
Upon the Defendant successfully obtaining a VALID Florida Drivers License, Counsel for the Defendant shall notify the Court and Assistant State Attorney that the Defendant has obtained a valid drivers license, provide the DL number to the Court and Assistant State Attorney, to confirm validity. Once confirmed valid, if the State has no objection the case will be dismissed and paperwork sent via the e-portal.
PRO-SE (Self Represented Litigants) can email a photo of their valid DL to email@example.com and the Court will send to Assistant State Attorney for confirmation and position on dismissal.
