Municipal Court

 

 Judge: Honorable Michael Stewart


Prosecuting Attorney: Amy Penfold


Clerk of the Court: Tina Duran  


The Municipal Court is located in the Town Hall Council Chambers. During court proceedings, entry is made through the main door of the town hall.  


COURT SESSIONS  

Municipal Court is held the third Tuesday of every month for arraignments, beginning at 4:00 p.m. There is no court in the months of March, July, and December.

The defendant will need to sign in at the front desk. The defendant will be asked if they would like to visit with the Prosecuting Attorney, and asked to read and sign a copy of the advisement of rights. If the defendant is a juvenile, a parent or legal guardian will need to be present, and will also be asked to sign the advisement of rights.

Prior to being arraigned, the defendant will have an opportunity to speak to the prosecuting attorney in an attempt to resolve the case.


PAYMENT OF FINES  

If the penalty assessment box (fine) has an amount entered in the front of the summons, you have received a Penalty Assessment. By law you are required to pay within 20 days from the date of violation. Failure to pay will cause this penalty assessment to become a Summons of Complaint and necessitate your appearance in Court at location, date, and time shown on the front of the summons, and an additional court cost will be assessed.  

If the (fine) box has “SUM” written in the box, you are required to appear in court at the location, date, and time shown on the front of the summons.  

Failure to appear in court will result in a warrant being issued for your arrest. This may result in contempt charges, additional fines, and a judgment against your driver’s license.  

Penalty Assessment summonses that are paid within 20 days as stipulated above will result in an automatic point reduction. See the back of your summons.
