Municipal Court MissionTo provide justice with professionalism and integrity by providing equal access and efficient adjudication of all matters brought before the court.

The Gulfport Municipal Court is the busiest city court in the State of Mississippi in terms of volume.  Municipal Courts have jurisdiction over misdemeanor crimes, municipal ordinances, city traffic violations, and civil domestic protective orders.

This court does not have jurisdiction of felony cases or juvenile criminal arrests; but does have jurisdiction of juveniles charged with traffic offenses (including DUI), liquor and tobacco violations, and those juveniles who have been certified as an adult or previously arrested as an adult.

 

What to Expect


In Municipal Court your first appearance is referred to as an Arraignment.  At this time you will be called upon to enter a plea (or answer) to the charge (Traffic or Misdemeanor) preferred against you.
