In the news there was a story from Florida of a politician pleading guilty before Circuit Judge Marc Lubet.
I thought that Circuit courts are Federal Appellate Courts (11 Circuit Courts in the U.S.). And Federal Trial Courts are called U.S. District Courts (94 U.S. District Courts in the U.S.).
While on the state level, trial courts are called Superior Courts (For example in California, there are 58 Superior Courts and 451 court houses covering the 58 California counties).
So can a defendant make a plea in a Circuit Court?
