Criminal trial session added to Plymouth District Court docket

Superior Court trial sessions to begin in Plymouth January 4

There will be some additional activity at the Plymouth County Courthouse on Obery Street in Plymouth beginning Monday. In a release last week, Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy J. Cruz announced that one criminal trial session and all bail reviews will be held at the downtown district courthouse.

"Creating a new criminal session in Plymouth makes good sense and will help facilitate access to the Superior Court for people in different parts of the county," DA Cruz said.

The new sessions in Plymouth will be in addition to the existing arraignment session and two trial sessions at Brockton Superior Court, the release said.

Plymouth County Clerk of Courts Robert S. Creedon Jr. said the Plymouth session will be less costly for some police departments in the county as they will no longer have to send officers to Brockton. "The new criminal session in Plymouth will help us to fully utilize our new Plymouth facility," Creedon said.
