COURTROOM DO’S AND DONT’S

Proper Clothes

Women should wear a dress, skirt or pants that are not too tight, too short, or low cut. It is never proper to wear shorts, t-shirts, or sandals. Excessive make-up pr jewelry should not be worn. In the courtroom itself, it is never proper to wear a hat, read a newspaper, eat or chew gum.

Children and Court
While it is important for a person charged with an offense to have family members and/or friends present for a trial or sentencing on a case, it is seldom, if ever, beneficial to have small children present.
