Judges In The Mayor’s Court

In some mayor’s courts, the mayor of the town will be the one who actually hears your case. However, in other places, such as Reynoldsburg, the mayor will appoint a magistrate who will hear the case. Often, the magistrate is an attorney or a former judge. The magistrate has authority over the case and can decide prosecution or cause, enter the judgment and hand down the sentence.

What To Expect At The First Court Appearance

When you have to appear in court for the first time, it’s called an ‘arraignment’. When you go to court, you will check in at the Clerk of Court’s window, and the clerk will show you where to wait. You’ll then go in the courtroom and either plead guilty/no contest or not guilty. If you plead guilty, the magistrate will accept your plea and tell you the sentence. If you decide to plead not guilty, the case will be scheduled for another hearing, and you may want to consult an attorney before returning to court.

Transferring And/Or Appealing Your Case

In Ohio, you have the right to transfer your case to a court of record if you so choose. If you do this, the location of the municipal court that will hear your case will depend on the location of the offense. For this court, the case could go to the Franklin County Municipal Court. In addition, you can appeal the decision of the mayor’s court within ten days of the date of the conviction. The case then starts over in the municipal court. Transferring and appealing cases is something that you may want to talk about with an attorney before making a decision.
