Office of the Criminal Court Clerk: Courtroom Modernization & ICJIS

A message from the Office of the Criminal Court Clerk, Thirtieth Judicial District of Tennessee at Memphis, Richard L. DeSaussure, Clerk:

The Criminal Court Clerk is committed to increasing our efficiency and accuracy by finding cooperative, integrated solutions to problems in the Shelby County Criminal Justice System.  

To that ends, we are pleased to announce that we have resolved the problems with the Private Attorney Network so that private attorneys can once again connect to the internet when they are in the Criminal Court Courtrooms.  Please submit your requests online by going to our webpage ( and clicking on the link in the section labeled, Private Attorney Network. 

Each day, we are publishing a list of cases that were indicted yesterday, as well as a list of all of the cases that have hearing set in the next week in Criminal Court.  Those files (we keep the last ten of each) are online at in the StateCriminalCourtCalendar folder. 

Finally, the Odyssey Portal ( is an invaluable tool for researching cases.  You can search for case information based on the Case number, Indictment number, AG Number, R&I number or name, in addition to a few more options.  Please see the Courtroom Modernization link on our website for Tips and Tricks on using the Smart Search feature as well as other enhancements to the Portal as they are rolled out.  

As your Criminal Court Clerk, I take your concerns seriously and want you to know that we continually strive to provide the tools for each of you to be able to vigorously defend the rights that our Constitution describes.
