Canton Municipal Court and Cherokee County State Court

Posted by Richard Lawson | Jun 28, 2010 | 0 Comments

If you are arrested within the city limits of Canton Georgia your case will start in the Canton Municipal Court.  At that court, you can negotiate a plea bargain or have a bench trial before the judge only.  No jury trials are held in Canton Municipal Court.  If you want a jury trial, your case will be transferred to the State Court of Cherokee County for a trial with a six person jury.
