02/22/2018 ~ Daily morning live court proceedings of Broward County’s 17th Judicial Circuit first appearance bond court. Proceedings will stream live online from 8:30 a.m., seven days a week and on weekday afternoons starting 1:30 p.m., except on Fridays when the afternoon session begins at 1 p.m.
Arrestees who are held in four Broward County jails appear on video before the judge, who may ask questions to gauge a person’s ties to the community and ability to pay bond.
The judge also decides whether an arrestee — who is innocent until proven guilty – should be set free until trial or, because of the nature of the charges, be held in jail.
