Misdemeanor Appeals

Appeal Jurisdiction

  • The Circuit Court has jurisdiction over all appeals from general district and juvenile and domestic relations court. These appeals pertain to cases that originated in these courts. Appeals from the general district and juvenile and domestic relations courts are heard from the beginning, that is, as if no previous trial had taken place.

Case Scheduling

  • Misdemeanor appeals cases are heard on the second Friday of each month at 9:00 am. When a defendant requests a jury trial for a misdemeanor appeal, the defendant will appear for scheduling only on misdemeanor appeal day, and will receive a date for trial at that time.
