Justice Court

Courthouse in Fall
Courthouse in Fall

Justice Court handles traffic tickets in Jackson County that are written by the Jackson County Sheriff's Department, Oregon State Police, Oregon Department of Transportation Weighmaster, Jackson County Weighmaster and some tickets written by police officers for cities within Jackson County.

You have two main choices on what to do with your ticket. You can plead not guilty and have a trial. You can plead no contest. A no contest is like a guilty plea. With a no contest plea, you can give the judge an explanation of the circumstances, which will be taken into account in determining the amount of the fine. The state Legislature has set a minimum and a maximum fine for each type of violation. The judge cannot reduce the fine below the minimum. The bail amount on the ticket is the "presumptive fine", which is higher than the minimum fine and lower than the maximum fine.

Justice of the Peace Joseph M. Charter is an elected official and is serving a six year term. He is a member of the Oregon State Bar, has a J. D. degree from the University of California at Berkeley (Boalt Hall), and a B.G. S. degree from the University of Michigan.
