Criminal Court Payments

The Shelby County Criminal Court Clerk, Heidi Kuhn, is pleased to announce that the Criminal Court Clerk’s Office is now accepting online payments for Shelby County Criminal Court Cases.

 Click here to go to and enter your case number, if that case number begins with a C. 

If it does not begin with a C, enter your indictment number and your booking number.  

If you do not know your indictment number and booking number, use the Shelby County CJS portal to search for your case number.  Your case number has 8 characters, followed by a dash, then ending with 8 more characters.  The first 8 characters are your indictment number and the last 8 characters are your booking number.  For example, if your case number were 98 76543-12345678, then your indictment number is 98 76543 and your booking number is 12345678.  As shown, spaces matter.  

Use these numbers and follow the onscreen instructions to make a payment on a case.  

Payments may take up to 2 business days to be reflected on your case.
