Have you been arrested for a crime in Palm Beach County? Were you issued a summons to appear in front of a judge? After an arrest, the arresting officer files his probable cause affidavit with the court. This document is more commonly referred to as a police report. A probable cause affidavit is a sworn statement made by a police officer stating his or her version of the facts that support the arrest. This document may or may not contain a case number. This case number begins with the year followed by either CT, MM or CF followed by a string of digits. For example, 2021MM12345AXXXSB would be a 2021 misdemeanor case in the Delray Beach South Branch. A case that has CT stands for criminal traffic and refers to DUI crimes, driving on suspended license charges, hit and run charges, reckless driving charges and other criminal traffic violations. Cases with CF are for felonies. For example, 2021CF23456AXXXMB would be an example of a 2021 felony case in the West Palm Beach Main Branch. To find your West Palm Beach case or Delray Beach case, go to the Clerk of Court website, click Guests, and then type in your first and last name or your case number. This will pull up the docket and allow you to access the documents in the file. However, some of these documents may be secured. Our criminal attorneys can help you to view the documents.
