COURT COVID-19 PROTOCOLS UPDATE:  Effective June 1, 2021

The Covid-19 Protocols of the 8th Judicial District and NYS Unified Court System are periodically reviewed and adjusted to ensure access to the Justice Courts, while safeguarding public health .  At present, our court is authorized to do the following:

1)  Conduct in-person arraignments on penal law charges, misdemeanor level or higher vehicle & traffic law charges and any other cases that may require an in-person arraignment in order to proceed. Letters will be mailed to parties that are scheduled to appear.

2) Conduct in-person sentencing where a plea agreement has been reached between the parties and has been presented to the court.

3) Accept small claims matters for filing. We are NOT PERMITTED to hold any civil hearings at this time.  Matters will be accepted and will be scheduled when permitted. 

4) Summary Proceedings (landlord/tenant cases) are only accepted on a very limited basis.  Please click here for updated guidance on process and procedure:  http://nycourts.gov/CourtHelp/Homes/evictions.shtml

 

Traffic Court for violations and infractions will continue to be handled by mail under the following system:

1)  Promptly answer your ticket by completing either section “A-Guilty” or section “B-Not Guilty” and return it to the court by mail to:

3)  Not guilty pleas will be reviewed by the Town Prosecutor. He will mail you a Memorandum of Plea Bargain which you much choose to accept or decline and  mail back to the court.  Once returned, if accepted, the Judge will make a determination on the disposition and a notice will be mailed to you.  If declined, the case will be referred back to the Prosecutor for further negotiation or held for a trial when permissible.

4)  Unanswered tickets and/or plea bargains will be subject to suspension.
