Please also be advised that the records you are ordering may have the personal identifiers of the defendant redacted.

Please be aware that copies of documents for cases just heard in court may not be immediately available due to time required for processing. Please allow 2-3 business days for processing after cases have been adjudicated before requesting copies.
