Criminal Division Information
The Circuit Court Clerk’s Criminal Division maintains all criminal files, prepares summons, accepts payment of fines and restitution, updates the criminal case management data base, and responds to requests for information.

The Criminal Division of the Clerk of Circuit Court handles all felony and misdemeanor cases originating by Grand Jury action as well as misdemeanor and traffic appeals from the General District and Juvenile & Domestic Relations District Courts.

Adult traffic infractions are processed by the General District Court, which is a separate entity with its own Clerk’s office. Only when cases are appealed from the General District or Juvenile & Domestic Relations District Court do they fall under the jurisdiction of the Circuit Court.

Which court do I need?
To prevent any unnecessary delay in processing please determine which Court has jurisdiction BEFORE contacting the Circuit Court Clerk's Office. The Circuit Court Clerk’s Office CANNOT assist with General District or Juvenile & Domestic Relations District Court matters.
