The criminal court schedule for Salem City General District Court is as follows:
- Criminal Cases
- Tuesday and Friday, 9 a.m., 10 a.m., and 10:30 a.m.
- Traffic Cases
- Tuesday and Friday, 9 a.m. and 10 a.m.
- VASAP revocations: 3rd Wednesday of every month, 2 p.m.
Typically the first time slot for criminal cases is designated for arraignments. If you hire a Roanoke defense attorney for a criminal misdemeanor, you will likely not have to show up for any initial court dates or arraignments, leaving the pre-trial work to the defense. In instances where you may be required to appear, we can file for a continuance with the clerk’s office when we file a letter of representation for your case.
