Mandatory Appearances In The Kettering Municipal Court

00Kettering DUI AttorneyTags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

Some people who are charged with an OVI in the Kettering Municipal Court think that they can skip their first appearance. This is not the case.  Many traffic and some criminal citations are payable in the Clerk’s Office and do not require a court appearance in front of the judge. These are called “waiverable” citations. You can choose to appear before the judge on your court date for these citations. Or, you can choose to waive your right to a hearing in court, plead guilty and pay your costs and fines for these citations in the Clerk’s Office. Waiverable citations must be taken care of on or before your court date. Your court date is listed near the bottom of your citation.

Other offenses are considered “non-waiverable” – meaning that you must appear before a Judge. Some of the most commonly-cited “non-waiverable” offenses include:

  • Indictable felony offenses.
  • Operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or any drug of abuse, or permitting another person who is under the influence of alcohol or any drug of abuse to operate a motor vehicle owned by the defendant or in his custody or control.
  • Reckless driving where charged under Kettering Ordinance as a fourth degree misdemeanor.
  • Leaving the scene of an accident.
  • Driving under suspension/revocation or without a license when jail is a possible penalty.
  • Failure to stop and remain standing upon meeting or overtaking a school bus stopped on the highway for the purpose of receiving or discharging a school child.
  • Willfully eluding or fleeing a police officer.
  • Passing a stopped school bus.
  • Drag racing.
  • Drug-related offenses with the exception of public intoxication M-M and M-4.
  • All speeding citations which are for 36+ miles per hour over the posted speed limit.
  • Wrongful entrustment.

The jurisdiction of the Kettering Municipal Court includes the Cities of Kettering and Centerville or Washington Township.  In addition, the Court handles criminal offenses and some traffic offenses which occur in the City of Moraine. If you were cited in Moraine, your ticket will tell you where to appear.

Kettering Municipal Court Statistics Show Drop In Cases

00Kettering DUI AttorneyTags: , , , , , , , ,

The Kettering Municipal Court appears to have experienced a significant reduction in the number of cases it is handling.  According to statistics HERE, the number of cases heard has dropped from 17,369 in 2013 to 15,819 in 2014.  But that does not tell the whole story.

Despite the drop in total number of cases, criminal cases are up. The court dealt with 2,707 criminal cases in 2013 and saw that number rise to 2,876 in 2014.  Similarly, civil/small claims filing rose from 1,219 to 1,364.  The drop looks to be a reduced traffic docket.  Traffic cases dropped from 13,443 in 2013 to 11,579 in 2014.

Compared to many local municipal courts this is bucking a trend.  As the economy has improved, many jurisdictions have been able to hire/re-hire law enforcement officers. The increased officers means more patrols which leads to more cases.

Kettering Municipal Court serves a population of approximately 117,000 and has jurisdiction over Washington Township and the Cities of Centerville, Kettering and Moraine.
