In acknowledgment of the Governor’s Declared State of Disaster and Emergency Orders issued by the Texas Supreme Court, Criminal Courts are operating on a limited basis. Access the various emergency orders related to COVID-19 here.

To ensure the safety and well-being of the public, Court proceedings are streamed on the following channels.

Due to COVID19, defendants must keep track of their next court appearance date on the County’s website, but should not appear in person unless told by their attorney or by the court. If you do not have an attorney, contact your assigned District or County Court for further instructions.

There are very few times when a defendant will need to come to court in person during the COVID pandemic – mainly if they are entering a guilty or no contest plea, and a very few other times if ordered by the court. Almost everything will be handled by your attorney by phone, email, etc. You need to have an attorney.
