Traffic Arraignments are held on Tuesdays at 9:00am
What to do When You Appear
Report to the Clerk's office and check in by properly identifying yourself.
When Court begins, the Judge will advise you of your rights and the pleas available to you:
Guilty or No Contest
A plea of not guilty is a denial of the allegation contained in the Complaint or Ticket. You will be given a notice of the date and time to return to the Court for a pretrial or trial.
Court Appointed Attorney
If you are charged with a jailable offense, and do not have money for an attorney, you may request to have an attorney appointed to you. As of September 29, 2005, Ohio Law requires all persons requesting a court-appointed attorney to pay a $25.00 application fee.
