Municipal Court

About the Municipal Court


Municipal Courts are the judicial branch of city government. In addition, the Municipal Court is part of the state judicial system. Municipal Court hears Class C Misdemeanor criminal cases, including traffic violations, for which the maximum fine, upon conviction, does not exceed $500. They also hear cases involving violation of city ordinances, which may have fines up to $2,000 for certain offenses. When you receive a citation, the first thing you will need to do is enter a plea on or before the 20th day after your citation date. Once you announce your intended plea, you may be scheduled for a court date, or you may have the option of disposing of the case without appearing in open court. If your situation allows you to resolve the matter without appearing in open court, you may pay the fine, provide proof for expired violations or insurance matters, or you may be eligible for an alternate sentencing option such as deferred disposition (deferred adjudication), or a driving safety course.
