There is one judge in the Marysville Municipal Court, Judge Mike Grigsby, and he has been on the bench since 1999. The prosecution in this court is provided by the office of the Marysville Law Director. The court is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, and the court is closed on weekends and holidays. Fines are paid in the office of the Clerk of Court. If you go to court and are ordered to pay a fine, you should expect to pay the fine the same day, as you will probably not be given additional time to pay.Case Process In The Marysville Municipal Court
The first step of the process for criminal and DUI / OVI cases is the arraignment. At the arraignment, you will be given the choice of pleading guilty, no contest, or not guilty. If you plead guilty or no contest, you will likely be sentenced on the same day as the arraignment. If you plead not guilty, you will have the opportunity to see the evidence against you and defend yourself against the accusation. It is helpful to have an attorney defend you if you choose to plead not guilty.
After the arraignment is a discovery conference, at which time the defense and the prosecution exchange evidence. Next is a combination of the pretrial hearing and motion hearing. The pretrial hearing is for negotiating with the prosecutor for a plea bargain. If there is an agreement regarding a plea bargain, it is finalized in front of the judge. If there is not an agreement, there is an evidentiary hearing on any motions that have been filed. If the case is not resolved at this hearing, it proceeds to a trial. At the trial, you are presumed innocent, and the prosecution has to prove your guilt to the jury or judge. If the judge or jury finds you guilty, the judge will hold a sentence hearing and announce your sentence.Attorney For Contesting Cases In The Marysville Municipal Court
