Municipal Court

The City of Maize is in the process of upgrading our Municipal Court software.  During this transition, we are no longer able to accept ticket payments online. We hope to be able to once again accept online court payments by the first part of September.  We apologize for any inconvenience.

The City of Maize Municipal Court meets the first, second and third Wednesday of each month at 4 p.m. Court is conducted at Maize City Hall, located at 10100 Grady Ave. A "Walk-In Docket" is available the fourth Wednesday of every month from 8:30 AM to 10:30 AM at Maize City Hall.  The municipal court deals with all criminal and traffic misdemeanor crimes along with city ordinance violations. The Municipal Court is served by a Municipal Judge and City Prosecutor. During the Walk-In Docket, the City Prosecutor is available  to meet with members of the public who are trying to address their municipal court charges prior to their court date.

The mission of the Maize Municipal Court is to expeditiously and ethically adjudicate traffic, criminal, and ordinance violations in a fair and courteous manner. The court also provides and serves defendants and victims with many other services such as; supervising probationers, conducting/scheduling drug and alcohol evaluations, supervising community service activities, and providing information to assist citizens in resolving issues associated with court proceedings.

The order of court is as follows:

  1. Call to Order
  2. First Call (Judge calls the defendants names, making sure they are in attendance)
  3. Second call (Judge reads defendants their charges and advises them of the MAXIMUM/MINIMUM fine or sentence. Defendants at this time enter a plea if guilty, not guilty, or no contest. Depending on plea, defendants are sentenced, fined, or assigned a trial date. Warrants are issued for those not appearing for their scheduled court dates)
  4. Recess (Defendants discuss their case with prosecutor, pay fines, assigned court dates if necessary)
  5. Call to order (Judge calls defendants to the bench to complete necessary business)
  6. Court adjourns
