Hudson Municipal Offenses
Hudson County Municipal courts sit at the local level and govern minor incidents that take place in towns throughout Hudson County. Only light offenses are heard in these courts like ordinance violations, fish and game offenses, traffic incidents and minor marijuana crimes. There are no jury trials on the municipal level. The judge makes all the determinations as to both the veracity of the facts and the verdict. The municipal court in which the offense is heard is determined based on where the arrest or ticket was issued. For example, if your ticket was given in Bayonne, your case will be heard in the Bayonne municipal court.
The following is a list of all the municipal courts in Hudson County: Bayonne Municipal Court, Jersey City Municipal Court, Hoboken Municipal Court, Union City Municipal, Kearny Municipal Court, West New York Municipal Court, Guttenberg Municipal Court, Secaucus Municipal Court, Harrison Municipal Court, East Newark Municipal Court, North Bergen Municipal Court, and Weehawken Municipal Court.
If you are charged with a numbered crime like robbery, rape, or terroristic threats in Hudson County, your case will not be heard in municipal court but in the Hudson County Court. Visit my Hudson County Court page to learn more about the charges heard on the county level.
