Minor traffic trials are held following arraignments at 7:00 p.m. on the 4th Thursdays of each month. These cases are heard by a judge without a jury. You will have a chance to ask questions of the police officer at the trial. You may bring witnesses, photographs and anything else that will support your case.

You may have an attorney speak for you at the trial, or you may present your own case. The City Prosecutor will appear for the city if you use an attorney. You must notify the court ten (10) days prior to your court date if you will be represented by an attorney.

The law does not allow a person to have a jury trial or court-appointed attorney for minor traffic cases.
