Frequently asked questions:

1) Why am I in Gahanna Mayor's Court?

All municipalities with at least 200 citizens have the option to establish a Mayor's Court, and where your case ends up is at the discretion of the citing officer. Mayor's Courts concern some legal watchdogs as there is incentive to impose higher fines and penalties to bolster the community's coffers.  Defendants benefit from their cases beginning in Mayor's Court as it is possible to "pick your venue".  Your attorney can always transfer your case out of the Mayor's Court if it is a better option.  Make sure you have an experienced criminal defense attorney who knows where your case should be.    

2) How is Gahanna Mayor's Court different from a Municipal Court?

Jury trials are not possible in Mayor's Courts - you do not have the right to request your trial be heard by a panel of Jurors. Additionally, they are not "courts of record," meaning the proceedings of court are not recorded by a court stenographer or a video/audio recording system. Finally, Mayors do not have to have any legal education or training to preside over their respective court, whereas all county Judges are required to have a law degree.
