The Manchester Circuit Court got underway yesterday with presiding judge Marva McDonald Bishop lamenting the high number of gun cases and the short duration of the circuit.
There are 99 cases down to be tried over the next three weeks.
Of that number 69 are gun related.
There will also be 14 murder cases, eight sexual offences and four wounding cases.
The court will also hear an arson, a burglary and two causing death by dangerous driving cases.
Meanwhile, judges of the Court of Appeal began wearing their new gowns yesterday in celebration of Jamaica's 50th year of Independence.
The judges on the five-member panel were robed in their black gowns with green and gold trim depicting the colours of the Jamaican flag on the front.
