The Fassio Law Criminal Defense Team is ready and able to defend people charged with criminal acts in either Canadian County (state court) or in the City of Yukon (city court/municipal court).
State courts and city courts are both types of courts in Oklahoma, but they differ in their jurisdiction and the types of cases they handle.
State courts are established by state governments and have the authority to hear a wide range of cases, including criminal and civil cases, family law matters, and disputes involving state law. State courts may also have appellate jurisdiction, meaning they hear appeals from lower courts. The jurisdiction of state courts may vary from state to state, but generally, they have authority over cases that involve state law or state citizens.
City courts, on the other hand, are established by local governments, such as cities or municipalities, and typically have a more limited jurisdiction than state courts. City courts generally handle cases that involve violations of local ordinances, such as traffic violations, parking tickets, and misdemeanors. They may also handle some civil cases, such as small claims disputes.
If you are arrested for a crime allegedly committed in Yukon, Oklahoma, charges could be brought against you by EITHER the City of Yukon (Municipal Court) or the State of Oklahoma, depending on the type of crime you are alleged to have committed.
The easiest way to determine this is simply look at the paperwork you have received (assuming you have received any paperwork yet). A Defendant (a person who has been charged with a crime) typically receives paperwork at Arraignment, if not before.
