A Defendant's Resources in Blue Ash Mayor Court

While mayor's court is a lot different from the standard municipal court in Montgomery County, an alleged offender still retains his or her fundamental rights under the U.S. and Ohio Constitutions. Alleged offenders should keep in mind the following:

Right to Counsel --Generally offenders have the right to employ or hire an attorney. If an offender is being charged with a violation that could result in jail time, the Court must provide an attorney to represent you at no cost, upon your request.

Jury Trial -- If an individual has a right to a jury trial if, upon a guilty verdict, he or she could be subject to any jail time. If the person elects to have a jury trial, then the case will be transferred from the West Carrollton Mayor's Court to the Municipal Court, as mayor courts in Ohio are not allowed to conduct jury trials.

Right to Appeal-- if the alleged offender is not satisfied with the outcome of the West Carrollton Mayor Court's decision, then he or she has the right to have his or her case heard by the municipal court.
