Barberton Municipal Court Attorney
Misdemeanors are heard in the Barberton Municipal Court, 576 W. Park Ave., Barberton, Ohio 44203. The first appearance is usually the arraignment, where the accused is informed of the charges and potential penalties for the charges. If the accused is in custody on the charge, a bond hearing either accompanies or precedes the arraignment. After the arraignment, the matter is set for pre-trial. If the matter is not resolved at pre-trial, then it may be set for another pre-trial, or for trial. The court may hold hearings on pretrial motions filed by the criminal defense attorney or the assistant prosecutor. The matter usually proceeds to a trial to the court, jury trial, a plea of guilty or no-contest, or is dismissed by the assistant prosecutor either voluntarily or as a result of a ruling on a pre-trial motion. Plea bargains typically resolve the entire case by an agreement to the charges and sentence. In more complex or serious matters, the court may order a pre-sentence investigation (PSI) prior to sentencing.

For those who are not directly indicted by the grand jury, a bond hearing is held in Barberton Municipal Court, followed by the preliminary hearing on a later date. If the matter is not resolved at the preliminary hearing and if probable cause is found by the court, the matter proceeds to felony court in the Summit County Court of Common Pleas, 209 S.
