Of course, all questions about your case need to be directed to your Hernando County DUI attorney, but information about court dates and the filing or setting of Motions to Dismiss or Motions to suppress or exclude harmful physical or testimonial evidence can be helpful in understanding your DUI defense file.

When looking up some cases, the family of a loved one who is either incarcerated, awaiting a bond hearing, etc. can be found at the Hernando County Jail or Hernando County Sheriff’s Office.

The Hernando County Jail is located just outside of Brooksville on the outskirts of Spring Hill.

If you travel about a mile down Spring Hill Drive, the Hernando County Jail will be on your left. If you are traveling from the North (Ocala, Gainesville), you will need to exit the Brooksville exit off of I-75 and turn right. Once you get to the intersection of Truck Route SR50 turn left. You will then need to turn left at the intersection of US41 and Truck Route SR50. Upon heading south on US41 you will take right(west) onto Spring Hill Drive and the Hernando County Jail will ultimately be on your right. The address for the Hernando County Jail is 16425 Spring Hill Drive, Spring Hill, Florida 34604 – phone 352-799-7379.
