Criminal

The Criminal Court has jurisdiction over infraction, misdemeanor and felony cases. The Criminal Court conducts trials, motions, arraignments, preliminary hearings, probation hearings, mental health proceedings, and other types of criminal proceedings. These cases are heard in the Hall of Justice Building, 850 Bryant St. (between 6th and 7th streets). However, some criminal cases are heard in the Civic Center Courthouse, 400 McAllister St., and the Community Justice Center, 575 Polk St.

To find out which department your case is being heard in, please review the Daily Calendar for criminal and traffic hearings, which is displayed on an electronic wall monitor outside Room 101, Monday-Friday, or call the Clerk’s Office.

A felony case is a criminal action in which the defendant is charged with violation of a felony. Misdemeanor or infraction violations may be included.

A misdemeanor case is a criminal action in which the defendant is charged with a misdemeanor and it may include an infraction charge. It does not include any felony violations. Misdemeanors include serious traffic violations, such as driving under the influence, which may result in fines up to $2,000 and possible jail time.
