Trial Information

Cases Eligible for a Trial

All violations, including parking, are eligible for trial. Defendants must appear in court for their arraignment to enter a plea of not guilty in order to schedule a trial.

Jury Trial Requirements

A $25 jury fee and a formal, written request must be filed within 21 days after arraignment or entry of a plea. 

Subpoena Witnesses

You have the right to subpoena witnesses to testify at trial on your behalf. Please request in writing any subpoenas from the clerk at the Municipal Court two weeks prior to your trial date. If a witness is not placed under subpoena and does not appear in court at the time of trial, the judge may not grant a continuance of the trial.
