CRIMINAL COURT DATE LOOK UP – FIND NEXT COURT DATE IN CRIMINAL COURT
If your case is in Criminal Court (New York Criminal Court, New York District Court, New York Supreme Court), then you need to use the Court’s WEBCRIMS to find your next Court date. You can also use WEBCRIMS to find free criminal records. By logging into WEBCRIMS as a public user, anyone, whether you are a defendant or an attorney/lawyer, can find someone’s next court date. You can find information and the next court date for both misdemeanor and felony cases. The system also gives you information about what court the case is in, the judge on the case, the charges, the defendant’s name and date of birth, the amount of bail that was set in the case, when the case was on last, all dates the case has been on the calendar, and whether or not a plea offer was made by the district attorney. WEBCRIMS is run by the Unified Court System and is the OFFICIAL Court Date Look Up website! Please note that often people who are arrested and given a Desk Appearance Ticket (DAT) will often not find their next court date in the WEBCRIMS system. This is because the DAT is issued by the Police Department and not the Court system directly.
FIND SOMEONE’S BAIL IN A CRIMINAL CASE
If you trying to find out if someone who was arrested has a bail, you can use the Unified Court System WEBCRIMS site to find a bail amount in a particular case. You can log into WEBCRIMS and look up someone who was arrested (defendant’s) information and find out if the Judge/Court set a bail at the arraignment and often, it will tell you how much that bail is (bail amount). You can also find out if someone was released on their own recognizance (ROR).
