HOW TO DRESS FOR COURT




If you are attending court you should dress in good, quality clothing.  Dress like you would if you were going on a job interview in an office, or like you would if you were attending a wedding or going to church.  This is important to show the proper respect to the Court.  Whether you like to show respect or not, prosecutors and judges will not exercise discretion in your favor if you dress with disrespect.

NEVER wear a hat, headphones or sunglasses in a Courtroom.

NEVER chew gum or tobacco in a courtroom. 

NEVER permit your cell phone or pager to be turned on in the Courtroom.  Many judges will take your phone and not return it if it goes off in court.  Instead, leave it locked in your car.

Judges get very upset when people wear shorts, flip flops, light flimsy tops, revealing necklines, bare belly buttons, and/or bare shoulders.

Shirts should be tucked in and buttoned up.  Belts should be fastened.  Closed-toed shoes are preferred.

If you wear a T-shirt (and we don't recommend it) make sure it doesn't bear any anti-social slogan.

Keep your hands out of your pockets.

If a family member or friend is in custody and does not have appropriate clothing for trial you may contact the jail where they are being held and bring them the appropriate clothing.
