What time does court start?

Court usually begins at 9 am. Lunch breaks are generally from noon to 1 pm. Hearings and Bench Trials typically begin at 11 am or 1 pm. Court hearings can be specially set by the court and vary in time. If you plan to attend any court dates it is suggested you call the LaSalle County State's Attorney's Office one working day before with the defendant's name and case number to check on the courtroom, time, and date. If there is a victim-witness coordinator assigned to the case it is best to check in with the coordinator. If they are aware you plan to attend the court date, the coordinator may be available to give additional assistance.
