The Twelfth Judicial Circuit uses a hybrid model for its court reporting services, comprised of the Official Court Reporters (OCR), which are stenographers, and Digital Court Recording (DCR). Each method provides a verbatim record of court proceedings that require the record to be made at public expense.
Order Transcripts or Audio CDs
Most proceedings are public record and are available to anyone wishing to obtain a transcript or audio (depending on which department made the record), regardless of their involvement in the case. If you want to order a court record, you will need to provide the case number, specific date(s) of proceeding, and name of judge.
OCR is used only in circuit criminal cases (felonies), for all trials, grand jury proceedings, all hearings in capital cases (pretrial, trial, and post-conviction), and, when available, hearings that are requested by the presiding judge to be covered by OCR
The reporter’s software instantly translates the court reporter’s shorthand and displays rough-draft transcripts contemporaneously on the judge’s computer.
Note: You will be redirected to the appropriate request form based on the information provided.
