Criminal term begins on the first day of March, June, September, and December. Court convenes at 9 a.m. and grand juries convene immediately after on the first day of term. Typically cases are set by agreement of counsel with consent of the court.
If for any reason you need to reschedule your court date, you should speak with your defense attorney to file this request. If you’re not represented by an attorney in Roanoke County, you may wish to speak with the clerk’s office. We work with the courts to figure out a solution that works both for the court and our clients.
