What Types Of Cases Does The Court Hear?
The Marble Cliff Mayor’s Court is a misdemeanor court, so it hears different sorts of cases involving alleged violations of the village of Marble Cliff ordinances. The types of cases include:
• Domestic Violence
• DUI / OVI
• Drug crimes
• Underage Drinking
Going To Court In Marble Cliff
The Mayor’s Court is in session on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month. As the court does not have its own building, court sessions occur at the Grandview Heights Municipal Building. The court sessions typically start at 4:15 pm. In some cases, the regular court date might fall on a holiday. If that happens, they simply hold court the following day.
When you go to court, you should be on time, and you should check-in then have a seat until your case is called by the court personnel. The court personnel, surprisingly, does not include a “judge”. Instead, the mayor is also the judicial officer. However, the mayor typically appoints magistrates to preside in Mayor’s Court.
The magistrate, when your name is called, will ask you what plea you want to enter. You can plead Guilty, No Contest, or Not Guilty. If you plead Guilty, the magistrate will impose consequences, and the case will be finalized. If you plead Not Guilty, your case will be scheduled for additional court appearances. Those court appearances will also be with the Marble Cliff Mayor’s Court, unless you choose to transfer your case.
Transferring Your Case
If you feel that you would rather have your case heard in a court of record, you do have the option of transferring your case, because this Mayor’s Court is not a court of record. If you transfer the case, it will go to the Franklin County Municipal Court. You can also appeal your case within ten days after it is finalized in the Mayor’s Court. If you appeal, the case will start over in the Franklin County Municipal Court. Transferring or appealing a case is not something you want to do without really thinking it through and possibly consulting with an attorney who can help you make a good decision.
