Cheryl Pounds , Municipal Judge
The Municipal Court has original and exclusive jurisdiction over violations of City Ordinances that occur in the territorial jurisdiction of the City and on property owned by the City in the City’s extraterritorial jurisdiction. Fines may be provided for violations relating to fire safety, zoning, public health, and sanitation. Municipal Courts have limited civil jurisdiction and are able to assess civil penalties for owners of dangerous dogs.
The Municipal Judge also serves as magistrate of the State. In this capacity, the Municipal Judge has authority to issue warrants for the apprehension and arrests of persons charged with the commission of an offense. As a magistrate, the Municipal Judge may issue emergency protection orders, hold preliminary hearings, discharge an accused, or remand the accused to jail and set bail.
The Court must maintain a record of each case filed before the Court, prepare judgments, hold indigence hearings, issue warrants, approve community service requests, magistrate juveniles and certify statements, and prepare cases for trials. The Municipal Judge presides over all trials, unless a reason for recusal is presented.
