You still have to go to the courthouse.

“Anyone with a disorder or disability should apply the same reasonable measures to coming to court as they do in their everyday lives,” wrote Samantha Dooies, a spokeswoman for the New Hanover and Pender County District Attorney’s Office.

Upon entering the courthouse, anyone with a disability should let a bailiff know, Dooies added.

“Courthouse personnel will make an effort to comply with the guidelines provided in the Americans with Disabilities Act for members of the public who need to conduct business in this building,” Dooies wrote.


If I don’t go to court, why do I have to pay court costs?

Where can I find the outcome of a criminal court case?
