The Jacksonville Municipal Court handles misdemeanor criminal cases and city ordinance violations that occur within the city limits and police jurisdiction. If you have been arrested for a non-traffic offense, you must appear in court on your court date.

If you have an outstanding warrant, you must turn yourself in on the warrant and post the appropriate bond. If you have any questions concerning a warrant, you may contact the Jacksonville Municipal Court office at (256) 435-6960.

The court office cannot provide legal advice. If you have a question concerning a legal aspect of your case, you must contact an attorney.

If you are scheduled to appear in court, you must do so on the date and time assigned. Failure to do so will result in further court action. Please contact the court office at (256) 435-6960 if you do not know which court date you are scheduled to appear
