The Grove City Mayor’s Court is not a court of record. If you prefer to have your case heard by a court of record, you always have the right to request a transfer to the Franklin County Municipal Court. This is something you will want to discuss with your attorney first. He or she will let you know whether transferring the case is the right decision for you.
If you are found guilty in the mayor’s court, you can appeal your case and move it to a municipal court. From the time of the conviction, you have ten days to file your appeal, and that includes weekends. You will file the appeal with the Grove City Mayor’s Court, and the case will begin anew in the Franklin County Municipal Court. An attorney can help you decide whether to appeal and can assist you with the appeal.Getting the Right Help for Your Case
