Federal courts open this weekend for APEC misdemeanors

The U.S. District Court courthouse on Ala Moana Boulevard will be open during the Veterans Day weekend to handle initial court hearings for people arrested on misdemeanor charges related to the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit.

“Individuals charged with federal misdemeanors will have hearings on the day of arrest whenever possible,” the federal court clerk’s office said.

The court will hold hearings at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday for the initial appearances.

Those hearings will be for arrestees who can be brought to the courthouse between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. on those days.

People arrested at other times will be held at the Federal Detention Center until their initial hearing the next morning.

The hearings are only for misdemeanor cases.

People arrested by federal authorities on felony charges will have their hearings during normal business hours next week, the clerk’s office said.
