Municipal Court

Overview

The Spring Hill Municipal Court handles cases of alleged violations of City ordinances committed within the city limits. The cases usually involve traffic and other minor offenses. The judge hears the cases without a jury.

A person charged with an offense in municipal court may be represented by an attorney.  If the defendant is unable to afford an attorney and there is a possible jail penalty, the court will appoint an attorney for the defendant.
