What should I wear and how should I act in court?

Shirts and shoes are necessary and respectable clothing is recommended. Hats are to be removed upon entering the courtroom. No smoking, food or drink will be allowed. Children may be present in the courtroom, but if they disturb the proceedings you may be requested to remove them. The Court does not provide childcare.

Check in with the Clerk and Court Security Officer upon your arrival at Court. After your check-in is complete, you may then enter the courtroom. Please turn off your cell phone. Find a seat and wait until your name is called. When your name is called, come forward and be seated at the table with the defense attorney.
