Watch Live Broward Magistrate Court Daily Here:
Arrestees who are not bonded out of jail appear before a magistrate judge the day following the arrest (including Saturdays and Sundays). Proceedings usually begin at 8 a.m., however this depends upon the presiding judge. The judge will inform the arrestee of the charge(s) and, if appropriate, will set a bond amount if there is a bond, or other condition or restriction.
All These factors are based on the Magistrates information and specific circumstances about the individual case.
Magistrate proceedings may also be viewed on the monitor located in the lobby of BSO's Main Jail.
