Current or Active Criminal Cases

If you have an open criminal case, you should contact the court directly. Here’s how to determine which court your file is located by using the cause number assigned to your case:

Example: 49G051101CF000000

• 49 = Indiana county code (49=Marion County)
• G05 = court room
• 11 = year
• 01 = month
• CF = case type
• 000000 = short cause number

Use the court room number (G05 in our example) to cross reference the court’s contact page.
