Procedure in Minerva Park Mayor’s Court

With the exception of jury trials, the Minerva Park Mayor’s Court has the same procedures as the Franklin County Municipal Court. They hold arraignments, pretrials, court trials, and revocation hearings.

  • Arraignment – You can enter one of three pleas at arraignment (Guilty, not guilty, and no contest). If you enter a not guilty plea, your case will be set for a pretrial.
  • Pretrial – This is the step where Meis Law will negotiate with the prosecutor and try to resolve the case before trial. If the police made any illegal searches or seizures, we will file a suppression motion to try and get rid of any illegally attained evidence.
  • Court trial – If there is no resolution during pretrial, the case will be set for a court trial and the magistrate will hear the case.
  • Even if you lose at your court trial at Mayor’s Court, you can appeal the decision and the case will be transferred to the county municipal court. This will start the process over again. Basically, you get two cracks at a trial if your case starts at the Mayor’s Court.

Because Mayor’s courts do not hold jury trials, you can choose to have your case transferred to the appropriate county court.
