Florida is divided into 20 judicial circuits. If the criminal case involves a felony, such as burglary, possession
of cocaine or grand theft, the case will be heard in the Nineteenth Judicial Circuit Court of Florida.

hear appeals from county court cases. Thus, circuit courts are simultaneously the highest trial courts and the lowest appellate
