The Misdemeanor Department maintains the records for misdemeanor offenses. Misdemeanors are offenses lower than felonies and generally those punishable by fine, penalty, forfeiture or imprisonment otherwise than in penitentiary. Misdemeanor offenses include petit theft, worthless checks, prostitution related charges, possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, resisting arrest without violence, battery (domestic violence) and assault. The Misdemeanor Department also handles ordinance violations such as littering, boating, animal control, water restrictions and juvenile smoking.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do I view a Misdemeanor court file?

Misdemeanor court files can be reviewed in the Clerk’s Criminal Department at 2 Courthouse Square, Suite 2800, Kissimmee, Florida. The office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Files older than two (2) years and back are located off-site. You must allow at least 24 hours from the time the file is ordered for the file to be located and brought to the Clerk’s Criminal Department for review.

  • What if I move? (Please see the related forms below, or via the link at the top of this page.)

It is the defendant’s responsibility to keep this office informed of his or her correct current mailing address, including zip code. If your mailing address changes, you must submit your new address by mail or in person to:

Clerk of Circuit Court
Misdemeanor Department
2 Courthouse Square
Kissimmee, FL 34741.

Please make sure your name and case number are on the address change when submitted to the Criminal Department.

  • What if I’ve been subpoenaed as a witness on a Misdemeanor case?

A subpoena is traditionally defined as a command to appear at a certain time and place to give testimony regarding a certain matter. Testimony is normally given in a court of law before a judge or hearing officer, or by deposition, in the presence of a court reporter.

If you are served with a subpoena and have questions, or are unable to attend on the date specified, you must contact the agency or attorney that subpoenaed you.

If you fail to respond to a subpoena, you may be held in contempt of court.
