Municipal Court

Welcome From Judge Marjorie Schuett


I hope that you will find the information to be useful. This website has information regarding an initial appearance in court for both adults and juveniles, truancy court, parking citations, pre-trial conferences, trials, and much more.

Jurisdiction


Middleton Municipal Court has jurisdiction in all matters involving violations of the City of Middleton ordinances. An ordinance violation is classified as a civil offense, not a criminal offense.

Rights & Responsibilities


Every person accused of an ordinance violation has certain legal rights and responsibilities. You are entitled to be represented by an attorney, although the court does not appoint an attorney for you and the City of Middleton does not pay your attorney fees and expenses.

If you are found guilty in municipal court, the court typically imposes a money forfeiture. You are expected to pay the forfeiture when you make your initial appearance in court. However, if you need more time, the court will grant you 60 days to pay.

Fair Environment


I work to provide an environment that is fair to both the defendant and the prosecution. Hopefully, your experience in court will be a positive one.
