Criminal Division

| More

The Municipal Court Criminal Division is the court for trials of misdemeanor cases and felony case preliminary hearings. All the arrests made in Philadelphia County must at least initially be processed through Municipal Court. In criminal cases, this is the beginning of the court's involvement even if final disposition is not reached there. Many felony cases are eventually tried in Common Pleas Court following their preliminary hearings in Municipal Court.

MUNICIPAL COURT CRIMINAL COURTROOMS ARE LOCATED IN THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE CENTER, 1301 FILBERT STREET AND IN SEVERAL POLICE DISTRICTS THROUGHOUT THE CITY OF PHILADELPHIA.
