The Superior Court handles all felony criminal cases and certain misdemeanor criminal cases.
Traffic tickets and many misdemeanors are heard in District Court. The court that your matter will be handled in is generally listed at the very top of your paperwork (Summons or Citation).
There are criminal dockets every day of the week, though some are used only for initial appearances of defendants after arrest. More information on docket times can be found on our Schedule page.
All counsel and defendants in cases set for trial during a specific week are required to appear on the Tuesday before at 8:30 AM for trial readiness review and will be given a specific day and time for their trial to begin. More information is available on our Criminal Process Page.
Defendants who qualify for appointment of counsel will have attorney’s assigned at their first appearance hearing. Information about appointed counsel may be found on our Public Defender resource page.
We have various criminal forms available for use in our courts. Those can be found in the Module to the left of this page.
