For defendants in Jefferson County jail only.

The municipal court is the judicial branch of city government. In addition, the municipal court is part of the state judicial system.

The municipal court processes and adjudicates all Class “C” misdemeanor violations of state law and city ordinances which occur within the corporate limits of the city. All traffic violations issued by the city are processed by the court. Punishment of these offenses is by fine only.
 
The court maintains records of all traffic and misdemeanor complaints and convictions, processes payments of fines, prepares documents and schedules trials, notifies witnesses and attorneys of court dates, processes overdue notices of outstanding fines and collects data for reporting purposes. The office also processes warrants issued for non-payment of outstanding fines.
